Nominations for Citizen of the Year & 2021 Annual Dinner Update

The Annual Dinner, held in February, is a long-standing tradition of the Venango Chamber, with the celebration of the Citizen of the Year and the Business and Partner of the Year recognition.

“It remains uncertain whether we can hold an in-person event, but if possible and safe, we’ll consider it or a hybrid event, with smaller attendance,” explains Chamber of Commerce President Susan Williams. “Recognizing excellence is important and this would not be a time to overlook those who continue to go above and beyond in our community.”
