As the new year approaches, it's time to start focusing on yearly awards for local citizens. Patty Hornbuckle, CEO of the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce said the awards vary from Boss of the Year, to Volunteer of the Year, and even to Outstanding Citizen. She said nominations should start coming in soon, and people shouldn't hesitate on it because the process can be a bit extensive as people have to be nominated and have letters of recommendation from their peers. Hornbuckle said the award of the night is the Outstanding Citizen Award.
Hornbuckle also hinted of Taylorville having a Hall of Fame that focuses on its citizens. She said the idea is still floating, and a lot of work still has to be done, but it's one thing she would love to provide for the community.
