The Sherwood Chamber of Commerce is making preparations for its 2014 Installation Banquet, which will be held on Feb. 6. As a part of that banquet, the chamber traditionally recognizes those members of the community that have done an outstanding job in the previous year.

The Awards Committee is beginning to accept nominations for the various community service awards. The categories are Man of the Year, Woman of the Year, Educator of the Year, Firefighter of the Year, Law Enforcement Officer of the Year, Emergency Transport Person of the Year, and Business of the Year.

Nominations may be made either mail to the chamber office, drop it off, or reply to the chamber email by Jan. 13. All ballots received will be held for the Awards Committee to review. People planning to nominate someone should make sure they note on the envelope "nominations."
