The Elgin Chamber of Commerce is looking for nominations for Elgin’s Military Family of the Year. The award will be given to an outstanding military family residing in Elgin. The winning family will receive recognition at the Elgin Chambers of Commerce Annual Banquet held February 17 and receive $600 in gift cards that would be donated by Corvias, Elgin Realty, and Hillary Communications.
The Chamber President, Benne Brewer, has said, “We want to acknowledge the valuable contributions our military families make to keep Elgin a great place live.” He has also said that, “Elgin is fortunate to have many military families in our community. While we can never repay them for the sacrifices they make, we want to recognize and show our appreciation for them.”
Nomination forms can be picked up at the Elgin Chamber of Commerce, located at 8209 US Hwy 277, Suite 11 in Elgin, OK; the forms can also be downloaded from the chamber website at: http://www.elginchamber.net or from the Chamber’s Facebook page.
Families may self-nominate themselves and community members may also nominate a family. Ideal candidates demonstrate individual growth, family teamwork and community service. Nominees must be active duty or retiree and reside in the 73538 zip code, own a business in Elgin, or have children that attend Elgin Public Schools.
Nomination forms are due on February 1, 2018 and should be returned to the chamber office in person, by mail to PO Box 362 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Forms should be typed and, of course, late forms will not be accepted.
