Know of someone whose contributions to the community have improved Walla Walla’s quality of life? If so, the Walla Walla Valley Chamber of Commerce wants to hear about it.
The organization is accepting nominations for the Award of Merit for Man & Woman of the Year. Winners will be recognized during the Chamber’s annual awards banquet in late November. The deadline for nominations is Oct. 31 at 5 p.m.
Nominees considered for the honor will be those who have spent a minimum of 15 years actively working in community service and who have made a significant contribution that has improved the quality of life for other people. Nominees must also be residents of the Walla Walla Valley. Those who have someone in mind should download a nomination form at wwvchamber.com or contact the Chamber directly at 525-0850.
The awards will be presented Nov. 28 during a ceremony at the Marcus Whitman Hotel & Conference Center.
