Second Quarter Congeniality Award Nominees Being Accepted, Deadline Is 6/23

WAYNE – Wayne Ambassadors with Wayne Area Economic Development are now accepting nominations for the 2020 second quarter congeniality.

According to a release from WAED, the nominations are due by Tuesday, June 23.

An employer can’t nominate his or her employee and a nominee may not be a past honoree. The Wayne Ambassadors meet on the fourth Wednesday of January, April, July and October to vote on nominations for the congeniality award. These nominations are approved and submitted by the Congeniality Committee at their regular meeting.

If not selected for the award, nominees will be automatically re-nominated unless withdrawn for one more quarter.

The person submitting the nomination will have to fill out the nominee’s name, who they work for and why do they deserve this recognition.

Chamber officials have set Friday, July 10 as the first Friday morning Chamber Coffee to return as an in-person event. The host will be the Chicken Show Committee with more information coming soon. WAED will continue to do Facebook Live posts (ChamberPercs) in addition to Chamber Coffee.

Each Friday WAED will also be hosting Chicken Shirt Fridays. The Chicken Show chicken will be out and about in the City of Wayne. If the chicken sees you wearing any chicken show shirt, your name will be entered into a drawing for some Chicken Show swag.
