The Lemoore Chamber will host its annual banquet on Friday, January 19, 2018, at the Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino. Smith, a native of Lemoore, will be honored as the 2018 Lemoore “Citizen of the Year.”

Kings Dental Group will be named the 2018 Lemoore “Business of the Year,” and God’s Bread Box will be named the 2018 Lemoore “Organization of the Year,” for their community outreach programs.”

A selection committee of previous honorees chose this year's selections.

This year an additional award has been added to the honoree list and selected by the Lemoore Chamber Board of Directors. It was the board’s vision to honor someone from the public safety sector whose positive influence has made an impact in the community.

After reviewing nominations from the community, the chamber’s board members are proud to announce that Lemoore Police Officer Jason Stephens was selected as this year’s Public Safety Individual of the Year for his tremendous contributions as the Youth Development Officer at Lemoore High School.
