The Algoma Area Chamber of Commerce is seeking nominations for Shanty Days 2017 Honoree.

The community has been honoring a special resident and/or business owner for many years as part of the annual celebration the second weekend in August. In addition to the honoree luncheon hosted by the mayor, the honoree has a prominent spot in the Aug. 12 parade and is acknowledged in most Shanty Days promotional materials.

Criteria, nomination form and more information is available at this link.

Last year Mary Nelson was selected for her outstanding volunteer record with St. Mary’s Church and the Shanty Days food vendor leadership.

Past Shanty Days Honorees were Clif & June Harmann, the late Edgar “Tiny” Nell, Ann & Larry Schmitz, Reiny Krause, George Miller, Ray Fulwiler and “Page” Knipfer, Maynard Zima, the late Lee Rush, the late Gene & Ione VanPrice, Whitey Ellsworth, Mahlon Dier, Earl Krueger, Jim Rabas, Jan Dart, Merle & Kathy Colburn, Jerry and Bonnie Seiler.
