The Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce and Visitor & Convention Bureau will host its Annual Installation & Awards Gala on Thursday, Aug. 10, at the Radisson Hotel in Santa Maria. Cocktail hour will be at 6 p.m. with dinner/program at 7 p.m.

As has been the custom for decades, the chamber will present multiple community awards during the event. This year’s award recipients are:

Robert P. Hatch Citizen of the Year Award: Bill Wurth

Robert F. Grogan Public Service Award: Santa Maria Retired Police Chief Ralph Martin

Small Business of the Year: Testa Catering

Large Business of the Year: Red Dog Management

The chamber also will honor its Ambassador of the Year, formally install Cameron Stephens (SM Tire) as its new board chairman, recognize outgoing board members, and celebrate the successes brought from the prior year.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
