After receiving more than 100 nominations for the Clovie awards, the Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce has narrowed the field down 43 nominees.

“We pick the top nominees for each of the (14) categories,” said Scott Wheatley, the Chamber’s executive director. “Our judging committee had a difficult time selecting the finalists due to the high calibre of the submissions.”

Wheatley will now send the names of the nominees to this year’s judges: George Gunnick, Randall Heidt, and Dean Moore. They will then decide on the winners.

The Clovies Awards ceremony will be held at Northview Golf & Country Club.

“Money raised through the Clovies helps fund the Chamber’s programs, business services, and the Cloverdale Rodeo Youth Initiative Foundation.”

Along with the awarding of the shiny-green Clovie trophies, the night also features “a silent auction, on-site entertainment, and a gourmet dinner.”
