The Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet is quickly approaching. The event which will take place on May 5th at the Pillars Event Center in Taylorville is designed so the Chamber as well as the community can present several different awards to outstanding members of the community.
Taylorville Chamber CEO Patty Hornbuckle says the winners for the various awards have been decided on, including a new award that the Chamber hasn't presented before.
Several of the award winners have been notified, so they can be prepared once they're presented with the award. A speech is typically involved, and Hornbuckle says sometimes award winners are prepared, while other times, not as much.
The Banquet kicks off this Friday at 6pm, with the awards presentation being broadcast live on Easy Hits 96.5, and the TaylorvilleDailyNews.com Facebook page. Hornbuckle appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
