FARMINGTON — The Bloomfield Chamber of Commerce will host its annual awards banquet at 6 p.m. Friday at SunRay Park & Casino.

The banquet will recognize members of the chamber who have shown excellence in their community, according to Janet Mackey, president of the chamber board.

Several awards will be distributed on Friday, including the Christine Donisthorp Excellence in Leadership Award. Mackey said the award is not given out every year and is given on a merit basis for an outstanding leader in the community.

The chamber will also give awards for business, citizen, customer service, educator and public employee of the year, Mackey said.

The event is themed “Denim and Diamonds.” Mackey said the event will begin at 6 p.m., with dinner at 7 p.m. and awards at 8 p.m. There will also be a silent auction throughout the evening.

Tickets cost $25 and can be purchased through the chamber at 505-632-0880. Mackey said there were approximately 30 tickets still available Wednesday morning.
