Albany Chamber Citizen and Youth of the Year
We're not really sure how long the Albany Chamber of Commerce has been recognizing adult and youths in our town for their outstanding service, but we do know that every one of these honorees worked very hard to make Albany a better place to live and work.
Youths and Citizens of the Year are honored with a place in the Solano Avenue Stroll Parade and at a dinner held in their honor. Youths of the Year also receive a $1,000 scholarship from the Elizabeth Bell Memorial Scholarship Fund.
