Lafourche Chamber to honor their own at annual awards banquet

Lafourche Chamber to honor their own at annual awards banquet

The Lafourche Chamber of Commerce will honor award recipients at their annual awards banquet set for Thursday, January 11, 2018, an event the Chamber looks forward to each year as they honor their own.

The Chamber takes pride in recognizing those individuals who stand out, and go above and beyond the normal scope of business and day-to-day activities, for their families, students, employees, and their community.

The following awards will be presented: The 2017 Business Person, Business and Industry, Community Hero, and Educator of the Year.

Nominations are being accepted for these awards until Friday, December 8. The Chamber will also award their top volunteer with the Ambassador of the Year award that evening.

Tim Rebowe will be the keynote speaker for the banquet. Rebowe, who is in his third season as head coach of the Nicholls State University football team, coached the Colonels to their first FCS Playoff Game in November.

Guests are invited to join in congratulating and supporting the award recipients who make this community a better place to live, work, and play, while taking advantage of a little shopping at the silent auction. The silent auction features items from local businesses and organizations. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.

Reservations are required to attend the 7:00 p.m. dinner, being held at the Wellness Center of Thibodaux Regional, and may be made by contacting the Chamber by calling 985-693-6700, or by emailing or by visiting
