The Algoma Area Chamber of Commerce is seeking nominations for Shanty Days 2017 Honoree
The committee, as well as the community, has enjoyed honoring a special resident/business owner for many years. In addition to the honoree luncheon hosted by Algoma’s mayor, the honoree has a prominent part in Saturday’s parade and is acknowledged in most Shanty Days’ promotional material.

Last year Mary Nelson was selected for her outstanding volunteer record with St. Mary’s Church and the Shanty Days food vendor leadership.
The Shanty Days Committee asks that the following criteria be used when drafting the nomination needed. These criteria are not all-inclusive, but are meant to provide guidelines for the committee.
