Chamber seeks nominations for SK Man and Woman of the Year

The Port Orchard Chamber of Commerce is calling for nominations for the 2009 Man and Woman of the Year, continuing a tradition of recognizing outstanding community members that began in 1963.

Since that time, 73 men and women have received this honor for their commitment to the South Kitsap Community.

The successful candidates will have donated many hours of service to the organization of their choice for the betterment of the South Kitsap community.
