In preparation for its 54th annual Awards Dinner next month, the Belfast Area Chamber of Commerce is seeking community assistance in selecting award-winners in several categories.

This year's awards dinner will be held Friday, Nov. 7, 5 to 9 p.m., at Point Lookout Resort and Conference Center in Northport. Television personality Bill Green of "Bill Green's Maine" will be keynote speaker.

To participate in the nominating process, go online to and add a name or business to the lists provided. (Entries shown are only a starting point, and the majority are last year's top contenders.)

A committee will review the entries and announce the winners the night of the dinner. Where appropriate, the Belfast Area Chamber of Commerce suggest that nominees be members of the chamber.

Tickets to the annual awards dinner are available by calling 338-5900 or stopping by the chamber office at 14 Main St. Anyone can attend the dinner. For members, the ticket price is $50; $60 for nonmembers. Table sponsorships are available.
