The Greater Newton Area Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Meeting and Fundraising Gala will be held tomorrow night at the Thunderdome. During the 5p.m. to 8 p.m. event…a committee that worked on hosting a major convention in Newton last year and a woman who spends a lot of her time at the Newton Arboretum are going to be given the Chamber’s annual “Key” and “Community Service” awards. 

That’s the Executive Director of the Greater Newton Area Chamber of Commerce, Amanda Price. She says this year’s “Key” award recipient is the Steering Committee for the PGI fireworks convention. 

Price says nominations for both awards are from members of the community. Two other awards will be handed out tomorrow night, but the recipients are not known beforehand. They are the Chamber’s Rock Star Awards for a small business and a large business. A Chamber Committee comes up with nominees, and the winners are selected by a vote of the Chamber’s Membership. This year’s large business nominees are Hy-Vee, Van Maanen Electric, and Wal-Mart. Small business nominees are Alpha Media, Kinetic Edge Physical Therapy, and Riggs Printing.
