By The Herald Staff

The Garnett Area Chamber of Commerce is planning to have its annual awards banquet next month.

The banquet will be 5:30 p.m. April 29 at the Anderson County Fairgrounds Community Building and Quonset Hut. The banquet will be an outdoor event to allow for distancing. There will be speakers, food, a live auction, and entertainment. Ticket sales will open soon.

The Chamber opened nominations for Business of the Year, Organization of the Year, and Volunteer of the Year, as well as a special award, the Chamber Champion Award, which was created to acknowledge the outstanding efforts of a Chamber business during the 2020 pandemic, for creative marketing, outside of the box thinking, and perseverance through one of the hardest years in the business community.
