Nominations for Bridge City Citizen of the Year and Business of the Year will be accepted through the Chamber of Commerce until Friday, January 6.
Chamber Director Mandy Lyda said nominations may be emailed to her at [email protected]. Nominations should include the name of the person, or business, and why they should be honored. Written submissions on paper may be made at the chamber office, 150 West Roundbunch Road, during regular business hours. The chamber is open Mondays through Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., and on Fridays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The Citizen of the Year and Business of the Year will be announced at the chamber's annual banquet, which will be January 23 at 6 p.m. at the Bridge City Community Center.
Lyda said sponsorship tables and individual tickets are still available. Individual tickets are $20 and will include dinner and drinks. Sponsorship tables with seating for eight are $200. Sponsorships include dinner and drinks for the table, plus the name displayed on Powerpoint during the banquet and the name listed in the program brochure.
Melissa Isaacs of the Bridge City-Orangefield Ministerial Alliance was named Citizen of the Year last year with the Sabine Neches Region taking the honors as Business of the Year.
Scott Shaffer is the current president of the chamber and will be handing over his gavel to in-coming president Wanda McGraw during the banquet.
