Algoma residents and businesses get recognized

Algoma has had a lot to celebrate lately, including those who make the town go. This week, the Algoma Area Chamber of Commerce gave their Beacon Awards to organizations and people in the community that make the city a better place to live. The selection process includes a nomination phase where anybody in Algoma can be nominated. A committee made up of chamber members chooses the award recipients.


The awards will be presented on August 5th at 6:30 PM shortly before music is played for their Concerts in the Park series. The awards and concert series aren’t all for Algoma this summer. Algoma Area Chamber Executive Director Ken Weinaug says there’ll be lots to do in town on the Fourth of July.
