Chamber of Commerce announces award recipients
The Vinton County Chamber of Commerce has announced the recipients of this year's awards to be given during their annual meeting and banquet. Tickets are now on sale for the event on October 11 at the Vinton County High School. Social hour will begin at 6 p.m. and dinner will be served at 7 p.m.
The Chamber holds this event each year to celebrate the people, businesses and organizations that are doing good work in the community. This is also a way to bring together community members for a relaxing evening of networking and fun.
This year's awards will be given to some very special community members.
Person of the Year will be given posthumously to Linda Remy, a longtime Chamber board member and tireless supporter of Vinton County, who passed away this summer.
Business of the Year will be presented to Ahoy Transport, a pioneering business dedicated to helping Vinton County residents meet their transportation needs.
The Community Spirit award will be given to the Vinton County Fitness Club for their work in making health and fitness accessible to all. A special award for Distinguished Service will be given posthumously to Ryan Seitz, a young firefighter killed in the line of duty last year.
This year's event, which is open to the public, will be catered by Flutes and Peppercorns and will feature local celebrity waiters. Tickets cost $20 per person and must be purchased by October 6.
