Thank you to everyone who participated in the Aztec Community Awards & Chamber of Commerce Banquet! This was the first year that we sold out and it was a great night. The new live auction was a hit and a great fundraiser for the chamber. The most important part of the night is the presentation of the community awards for Business, Citizen and Educator of the Year.
Congratulations to our 2013 winners!
Business of the Year - Owner George Rowe of Crash Music
Citizen of the Year – Larry Turk
Educator of the Year – Pat Sannes from Koogler Middle School
The Sally Burbridge Award for Excellent Community Service is a merit based award and was presented to Candy Frizzell, Editor & Publisher of the TALON. The Aztec Local News or TALON is celebrating their 20th year in 2013, and it is truly part of what makes Aztec unique. The TALON is our local voice and as we all wait with anticipation for the next bi-monthly issue to come out and read it religiously it brings us closer as a community.
As always this event was one of the highlights of my job at the chamber. Thank you to Sutherland Farms for the fabulous dinner, thank you to Wines of the San Juan and the Crash Music House Band for making the night so much fun, and thank you to the AHS Key Club for all your help and service! I would also like to thank the Friends of Aztec Ruins, Salmon Ruins Museum and Research Center, Music in the Mountains, the General Palmer Hotel, Kokopelli’s Cave Bed & Breakfast, HP, and the TALON for their generous donation of auction and raffle items! The chamber would not exist without the support of the community! Click Here to view the photo gallery.
