It's time to recognize those who have contributed to the community.

The Altona Chamber of Commerce is accepting nominations for citizen of the year, youth volunteer of the year, and volunteer of the year.


Chamber Manager Susan Yakabowich says the youth volunteer award is designated for people 21 years or younger who have contributed to the community, churches, or schools.


Yakabowich adds the awards will be handed out at an awards ceremony March 10th.


She notes the Chamber feels Altona is very rich in the sense that we have a lot of residents working hard and making a difference in the community.
