The Greater Williamsburg Chamber of Commerce recently presented the 2021 Roll of the Drum Award to the city of Williamsburg as well as James City and York counties for their assistance with residents and businesses throughout the covid-19 pandemic.

The Chamber honored the three localities with the award for various reasons: the diligence of first responders; creation of grant opportunities; distribution of vaccinations; and efforts of educators and other workers who remained on the job throughout the pandemic.

“We have witnessed a tremendous amount of collaboration this past year, and our community has been made stronger as a result,” Terry Banez, CEO of the Greater Williamsburg Chamber of Commerce, said in a statement. “It is a joy to express our appreciation of our local governments with this Roll of the Drum award.”

The Roll of the Drum Award, which was first presented in 1967, recognizes individuals for outstanding work on behalf of the community and the Chamber.
