Elma Chamber of Commerce asks for citizen nominatons

The Elma Chamber of Commerce is asking the Elma community to nominate a person who they think has made Elma a better place to live.

Nominees would include individuals who work tirelessly and give of themselves to help others, or improve the community in other ways. Nominating those individuals would ensure they get the recognition they deserve.

Citizen of the Year awards recognize outstanding, service-minded individuals who have exceptionally impacted the Elma community. Citizen of the Year awards will be presented on May 5, at the Elma Citizens Award Recognition Banquet. The event, which will be at the Elma Eagles Banquet Hall, will include a prime rib dinner, entertainment and silent auction.

The nominated individual should demonstrate definable, exceptional deeds that showcase a dedication to making Elma a better place to live, work and play. The individual may have a history of impacting the community, in addition to notable impact throughout the course of this year. The individual should be, or have been, “extremely active” and hands-on in the community and should be considered a role model.

Nominations are due by April 21.

For a nomination form contact Elma Chamber of Commerce by email elmachamber@gmail.com or call (360) 482-3055.
