2020 Awards

 

The 2020 Annual Chamber Awards were presented on location on November 23rd and 24th with each award winner at their respective businesses. Due to COVID-19, we decided not to hold a larger in-person awards event. This year the winners will be announced daily at 4pm beginning December 1st and conclude with the full video presentation at 7pm on December 7th. A very special thank you to our Celebration Sponsors this year: Camden National Bank, Changing Seasons Federal Credit Union, and Hannaford.
