Each year, the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce recognizes people who help make the towns a thriving community.
The Chamber of Commerce will host Salute to Community Heroes Thursday at 6 p.m. at University Place. This event will recognize first responders and residents who give selflessly to the Carrboro and Chapel Hill community.
The annual event is a festive occasion, said Kristen Smith, vice president for government and community relations for the Chamber of Commerce.
“The event will have a sing-along led by the UNC Loreleis and refreshments by Chick-fil-A at University Place,” Smith said in an email.
The Chamber of Commerce recognizes one individual from the UNC Department of Public Safety and from the police, fire and emergency services departments in Carrboro, Chapel Hill and Orange County. These departments choose the employee who they believe should receive the award.
