Atlantic Chamber seeks “Angels of Christmas” nominations


October 23rd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

It’s that time of year when the Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce puts out a call for their “Angels of Christmas” nominations.

For the past several years the Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce and Stifel Nicolaus have sponsored the Angels of Christmas award, a surprise honor bestowed upon two community members who symbolize the true meaning of the holidays. The “angels” are nominated via written letters of recommendation to the Chamber. The presentation happens in front of a large audience at the end of the annual free holiday concert at the First United Methodist Church on the second Saturday in December.

Nominations are due November 2nd. They should detail the individual or couples’ contributions and qualities and be received at the Chamber during the first week of November. The mailing address is 102 Chestnut Street, Atlantic, IA 50022 or

A free holiday concert, sponsored by Aunt B’s, Bonnesen’s, J&R Tax Service, and Unique Salon & Spa and coordinated by Guy Somers, is scheduled to take place December 8th, beginning at 7 p.m.
