State Senator James Seward will receive the 2020 Otsego Chamber of Commerce’s Distinguished Citizen Of The Year award during the chamber's “Evening with the Stars” event, a celebration of the county’s entrepreneurial spirit. That event is coming up on May 7 at the Foothills Performing Arts Center in the atrium. The Chamber began giving out the award nearly 20 years ago to citizens who’ve made a long-term impact on the region and have given back to the community through their professions. The Chamber is also honoring Custom Electronics as the NBT Bank Distinguished Business Of The Year. According to the Chamber, Custom Electronics launched in the last year a $2.2 million expansion plan, adding 90 jobs and plans to hire another 50 employees.

The Otsego County Chamber looks forward to welcoming you to this celebratory event. Invitations will be sent out early next week.
