ELLSWORTH -- It is time to honor those who have proven themselves to be business superheroes over the last year,

The Ellsworth Area Chamber of Commerce annual awards banquet will take place on Facebook live 7 p.m. Monday, March 22, and will showcase how not all superheroes wear capes.

During the virtual event, the best of 2021 awards will be named and the small business, large business and community leader of the year recipients will be honored.

Small business

Village Pharmacy won the small business of the year award because of its continued effort during the pandemic to provide the community with great service. The employees and owners made sure everyone felt safe when getting their essential medications, according to the chamber.

Large business

CCF Bank won the large business of the year award due to the hometown feel that employees give customers. The chamber said the bank has continued to support small business ventures in the community and embody the bank’s motto “making more possible,” which the residents of Ellsworth appreciate.

Community lead

Rick Kornmann won the community leadership award because of his work on the Ellsworth School Board and his support, in particular, of the district’s agriculture program. Kornmann served on the board for 15 years and helped start the Ellsworth FFA Alumni.
