Join the Mt. Pleasant Area Chamber of Commerce at the Comfort Inn Conference Center Saturday, March 5th, 2022 for the
65th Annual Awards Banquet, which recognizes the most outstanding community leaders in Mt. Pleasant, honoring individuals and businesses who have given selflessly in service to our community.
One truly remarkable citizen will be honored with the Outstanding Citizen of the Year Award, and other exceptional community service club/organization volunteers who have "soared" above and beyond will be honored with Eagle Awards.
We will also again be honoring two Mt. Pleasant Chamber member businesses (one small, one large) for their support of the Chamber of Commerce, and their dedication to our community with Business Community Service Awards.
In addition, we will again honor one outstanding Mt. Pleasant area young professional who has demonstrated leadership to improve the quality of life in Isabella County and significant support of Mt. Pleasant Chamber initiatives, with the Young Professional of the Year Award!
Finally, one individual who is a rising star in their overall service to this community will be honored with the Rising Star Community Impact Award! They may be a relative newcomer, or have recently become involved in the community, but have already made a huge impact -- maybe even in several ways!

Enjoy an evening out celebrating Mt. Pleasant's finest!
In 1957, the Mt. Pleasant Area Chamber of Commerce began what would become a time-honored tradition, which has continued to this day, to honor Mt. Pleasant’s exceptional citizens. Held each year in early March, this community-focused event honors outstanding volunteers from local service clubs and organizations for excellence in service and leadership. The event was recently expanded to honor a large and small business, and a local young professional who have demonstrated outstanding commitment and service to the community. The Chamber’s highest honor, the Citizen of the Year Award, is the highlight of the evening as it is a surprise to the recipient and all attendees.
Event Features: Cocktail Reception, Cash Bar, Awards Program, Dinner, Dessert, chance to win a Sapphire, and Entertainment! Business formal/semiformal attire recommended.
