PARIS – The Oxford Hills Chamber of Commerce is accepting nominations for its annual Community Service Award.

The criteria for nominees is long-term service to the towns and residents of the Oxford Hills. Nominations will be accepted through the end of October and must be submitted along with the official nomination form available at the chamber office at 213 Main St.

Nearly 27 years ago, Josephine Stone of Barjo’s Restaurant on Main Street in Norway was honored with the first Community Service Award. It was given for her uncompromising commitment to the towns of the Oxford Hills and those who were in need. Since then the Chamber of Commerce has presented this award to 47 others who represent the very best in selfless dedication to helping make the region a better place to live.

Chamber Director John Williams said nominations are also being accepted for the Employee of the Year Award for Oxford Hills. It gives employers in the area a chance to recognize the outstanding work being done in their businesses by individuals who have helped the business grow and be a positive catalyst for the community as well.

Nominees for this award must be employees of chamber members, and like the Community Service Awards, nominations must be submitted on an official form which may be obtained through the chamber office at 743-2281.
