(Beaver Dam) The Beaver Dam Chamber of Commerce is still accepting nominations for their yearly recognition of a local business, citizen and non-profit organization. The chamber will base their 2021 Business of the Year selection on customer service, employee / management volunteerism, charitable contributions and other investments in the community, along with other industry awards that have been earned. This past year, Hometown Glass and Improvement was honored.
For Citizen of the Year nominations, the chamber will consider volunteerism, civic involvement and charitable contributions. Kraig Kasten was singled out this year. The Non-Profit of the Year is judged based on the organizations general impact on the community, preferably over the course of a long period of time rather than the recent past, and by other awards and recognitions that the organization has received. Community Care Preschool and Child Care was honored this year.
The nomination deadline is November 29 and forms are available at the chamber offices or at beaverdamchamber.com. The recipients will be honored at the Chamber’s annual meeting on January 27, which will be virtual though the hope is to have an in-person recognition later in the year.
