Clayton Chamber Announces Essential Workers As The 2020 Citizens of The Year
The Clayton Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Clayton’s essential workers during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic are the 2020 Citizens of the Year.
“Although we previously canceled the nominations and banquet held in October due to COVID-19 restrictions, we felt that it was important to continue to the tradition of honoring Clayton’s outstanding citizens, and there is no group more deserving than our essential workers. This recognition will honor all those who worked during the initial NY on Pause stay at home phase, putting in long hours and themselves at risk when many had the luxury of working from home,” stated Chris Bogenschutz, President of the Clayton Chamber of Commerce.
Clayton’s first responders, police officers, health care professionals and other essential workers at grocery stores, pharmacies, gas stations, banks, the post office, delivery drivers, liquor stores, lodging facilities, sanitizing services, restaurants who provided take-out, and other public servants will be paid tribute with certificates of appreciation for helping their fellow citizens get through these unprecedented times.
The Clayton Chamber Board of Directors encourages you to thank essential workers when you frequent establishments. If you have a special story you’d like to share about an outstanding business/essential worker, or would like to just say thank you, please visit www.1000islands-clayton.com/givethanks.
