“We’re excited to announce this amazing group of finalists for the 67th Annual Hats Off to Excellence Awards. There were over 50 outstanding nominations submitted and the selection committee has selected 27 finalists over nine categories,” said Les Voros, Delta Chamber Chair. “And this year we’re going to continue the new tradition of announcing the Citizen of Year at the awards gala, without any finalists.
