Three major honors were the subject of the Greater Chiefland Area Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet on May 2, making this year’s edition a big draw. Hosted at Haven in Chiefland with a slew of door prizes and an auction hosted by Daniel Jerrels, the banquet combined the Citizen of the Year and the Business of the Year awards and for the first time added the First Responder of the Year award.

The funds raised from the auction go to a children’s backpack food program and a scholarship fund supported by the Chamber.

The Chamber also presented the family of Betty Walker a special plaque for the late Chiefland Mayor’s “many years of dedication, caring and generosity to the community of Chiefland, Chiefland.” Walker passed in February after serving seven terms as mayor and more than 15 years on the City Commission.

The Citizen of the Year award went to a tireless advocate for working service dogs, Barbara Snow, who is the executive director for the Southern Region of the U.S. War Dogs Association, Inc.
