LLANO — The annual Llano Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet is honoring Llano’s finest.

The event is 6 p.m. Jan. 26 at the John L. Kuykendall Event Center, 2200 RR 152. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.

Hall of Fame selections will be announced as well as Citizen of the Year, Educator of the Year and others who make Llano a great place to live and work, said chamber executive director Briley Mitchell.

“This is the one event that honors the best of the best in Llano,” he said. “This is the one everyone ought to be a part of.”

The event’s theme is “Bridging Business and Community,” which is perfectly summed up in a canvas print of the Llano bridge shot by Mitchell, who also is a professional photographer.

“I picked my very best bridge shot,” he said. “I shot the it during sunrise.”

And instead of a silent auction, attendees will have a chance to win a handgun or a rifle by playing a game of squares for $10 each.

Call the chamber at (325) 247-5354 for more information.
