Carmi Chamber Seeking Nominations for Citizen of the Year and Business of the Year

CARMI – The Carmi Chamber of Commerce is currently seeking nominations for Citizen of the Year and Business of the Year. Both awards are one of the highlights of the annual Carmi Chamber of Commerce Dinner set for Monday, Oct. 4.

The Chamber has recognized a member of the community as Citizen of the Year for his or her good deeds and community spirit since 1957. The recipients have come from many walks of life, but they all have one thing in common – they have made Carmi a better place to live.

The Chamber will also be honoring a Chamber member business as Business of the Year. When making your nomination, keep in mind the activities and significant contributions these businesses have made to the City of Carmi. 

Letters submitting nominations for Citizen of the Year and Business of the Year should be mailed to 225 E. Main Street, Carmi, IL 62821. You can also e-mail your nomination to chamber@cityofcarmi.com or go to a link on the press release about the nominations on the Chamber’s website. Nominations must be received by Aug. 23 to be considered.
