Editor, The Times:

Clearwater and District Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that we will be having another ‘Of the Year’ Citizen and Businesses recognition awards evening.

On Friday, Feb. 23, we will honor the contributions of several businesses – in various categories, plus one amazing employee and one volunteer extraordinaire.

This event will feature an awards ceremony with presentations to winners and a dinner at Clearwater’s Royal Canadian Legion. We have increased the number of categories to five from only two to better recognize businesses in the area.

The details will be found in upcoming issues of the Times, on social media and sent to all paid-up members of the Chamber of Commerce. Nomination forms will be available at drop off locations, which are located in each of the major sections of town – Clearwater and District Chamber and Yellowhead Community Services office (both in Dutch Lake Community Centre), Mystic Dreams, Home Hardware, and Wells Gray Inn.

We look forward to receiving your submissions, due Feb. 9, as we will need to determine the most deserving recipients from amongst what we hope will be an amazing amount of submissions sent in by you, the public.

Anne Krawec, secretary

Clearwater and District Chamber of Commerce
