The annual Belmond Community Awards Banquet will be held tonight at the Cattleman’s at the Club. The event is put on by the Belmond Chamber of Commerce and and the Belmond Promotion Council. The event will begin at 5:30pm with a social hour followed by a 6:30pm dinner and a 7pm awards program.
Chamber member Tony Andrews says that there is a lot of history behind this awards program.
Belmond residents were asked to submit nomination forms to the Chamber Office or at City Hall. The awards include the Distinguished Service, Lifetime Community Service, Youth Service, Guardian Angel, Religious Leader or Leaders, and the Sunshine Award. Of the awards, both the Distinguished Service Award and the Lifetime Service Award have an age requirement according to Andrews.
