• Lakeside Chamber of Commerce Annual Awards

  • Chamber Community Awards

    The Lakeside Chamber of Commerce holds its Annual Awards Night, in July. It is a celebration of our community, honoring our award winners and installing our Board of Directors. It is an evening of pride for our community  while we recognize those who give of their time and energy to Lakeside.  

    Our Annual Awards Ceremony include: 

    • Harry J. Spence Citizen of the Year - This annual award is given to a man or woman in the community who has been an outstanding contributor to the community.
    • Rick Smith Award - In memory of Rick Smith, a lifelong Lakeside Advocate, the Lakeside Chamber established an annual Rick Smith “Commitment to the Community” Award in 2011.  Each year this award is given to individuals who exemplify the attributes of Rick; someone who gives of themselves, selflessly, to the Lakeside Community with integrity and for no other purpose than for the greater good of Lakeside.
