The Sun Valley-Ketchum Chamber & Visitors Bureau has announced that Ketchum real-estate broker Dick Fenton will be awarded its 2005 "Citizen of the Year" award.

The announcement came as the Chamber named seven Wood River Valley residents and two regional organizations that will be honored as part of the 2005 Community Awards, an annual event that recognizes outstanding efforts for supporting community causes.

The awards will be presented Friday, March 18, during the 8th Annual Community Awards Dinner. The banquet and awards ceremony—which will feature a comedy performance by entertainer Chris Millspaugh—will commence at 6:30 p.m. in the River Run Lodge.

Fenton, a partner in Ketchum-based McCann-Daech-Fenton Realtors, will be recognized for his 15-year commitment to volunteering to support community projects.

Other award winners announced this week include:

· Business of the Year: Wood River Insurance, for the volunteer work of its employees.
