on

Deadline to submit a nomination for the three annual awards presented by the Bowie Chamber of Commerce is Jan. 10.
The awards will be presented at the Jan. 24 banquet, which has a theme of “Take Me Back In Time,” as chamber members have been invited to select a decade and use that as a theme for their decorated banquet table.
Joseph Delgado, Farmer’s Insurance, was elected 2022 president at the recent December meeting. Carol Head, Montague County Shopper, was elected first vice president.
The remainder of the executive board will include Jammie Rodden, WL Plastics, secretary; Gaylynn Burris, mayor, treasurer; Kory Hooks, Patterson’s Auto, outgoing president and Debbie Herriage, membership director.
The chamber has three major awards where they seek nominations from the community. Award winners will be presented at the banquet. Deadline to submit a nomination is Jan. 10.
The Frances Brite Citizen of the Year 2021, which goes to a single citizen who has worked with, for and in the community during the past 12 months.
The Community Support Award is a relatively new award launched in 2019. It recognizes an entity (organization, business or non-profit) that has worked with, for and in the community during the past 12 months and is a new or current chamber member.
The Business of the Year award recognizes outstanding pride in Bowie. The nominee must demonstrate a commitment to the community and have a record of contributions to its welfare and has had success in promoting, advancing or serving in the community.
Nomination forms that outline all the requirements for the awards are available on the chamber website at bowietxchamber.org or stop by 101 E. Pecan to pick up a form.
