SCHROON LAKE CHAMBER SEEKS NOMINATIONS
FOR 2016 CITIZEN/ORGANIZATION OF THE YEAR
The Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce is seeking nominations from the community for Schroon Lake’s 2016 Citizen/Organization of the Year. Help the Chamber celebrate Schroon Lake’s best and brightest by nominating one of our outstanding citizens/organization for this great honor. If you know a person or organization that you feel should be recognized for their contributions to our community, the Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce wants to hear from you.
The Chamber of Commerce established the Citizen of the Year award in 1976 to honor an area resident or organization that has made a significant and sustained contribution to the quality of life in Schroon Lake. The Chamber of Commerce will honor the 39th person or organization at its annual dinner in June 2016.
Nominations for the 2016 award must include a letter listing the accomplishments for which this person or organization should be honored. Please provide details of their achievements, volunteer endeavors, community service, efforts to improve the quality of life of someone else or the community, and personal characteristics that you believe qualify the nominee as Citizen/Organization of the Year. The nominee need not be a Chamber of Commerce member, but must reside in the Town of Schroon, North Hudson, Paradox, or Severance.
Any individual or organization may submit a nomination via email to chamber@SchroonLakeChamber.org or by mailing it to Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce, PO Box 726, Schroon Lake, NY 12870. Please include your name and contact information in either. All nominations must be received by May 7, 2016. For questions or a list of previous honorees, please call our Executive Director, Tammy Whitty-Brown at the Schroon Lake Chamber office at (518) 532-7675.
