Sodus Chamber 2013 Citizen of the Year

    By on March 21, 2014

    The Sodus Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that Betty Mayou is the 2013 Citizen of the Year. Betty’s service dates back to the early 1950’s in many groups including Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Methodist Church Sunday School Superintendent, not to mention now serving on the Village Zoning Board and Garden Club. Although no longer Site Manager at Sodus Nutrition site, she volunteers there on a daily basis.

    The Chamber will also be recognizing the Sun and Record newspaper with a Milestone award. This local paper has served Sodus, Williamson and surrounding area for 137 years. Editor and owner Wilma Young is a past Board of Director for the Sodus Chamber as well as a Board member for the Williamson Chamber. The paper continues to grow with the addition of the Wayne County Mail starting this year.

    The public is invited to attend the banquet to honor Betty and Wilma on April 11 at Abe’s Waterfront Restaurant (which will be closed to the public for the evening). The celebration starts at 6:00 pm with cocktails, followed by dinner at 7:00 p.m. Dinner tickets are advanced sale only. They are available at Fox Law Office, Main St. (483-6733), Sodus Curves, Maple Ave, (483-1222), Reliant Credit Union (Sodus Branch) or by contacting the Chamber at 315-576-3818. Deadline for ticket sales will be 4/4/14 and no tickets will be available at the door.

    The Chamber will also be drawing the winners of the Scholarship raffle throughout the evening (but you need not be present to win). All proceeds from the raffle go towards scholarships to benefit graduating Sodus students. Over $16,000 in scholarships has been awarded since 2003 and this year it is our hope to raise even more. Raffle tickets are available from any Chamber member and the dozens of items are on display at Curves on Maple Ave. It’s not too late to donate items for the raffle, you drop off at Curves on Maple Ave or Reliant Sodus branch (or contact the Chamber for pick up).

    Please join us as we celebrate the accomplishments of all these notable people at the Sodus Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year Banquet on April 11, 2014. For more information contact the Chamber at or call the Chamber at 315-576-3818.
