---- — Honors, entertainment and food will be on the agenda tonight as the the Otsego County Chamber holds its annual dinner in the Hunt Union Ballroom at SUNY Oneonta.

At Home Care will be feted as the the NBT Bank Distinguished Business of the year, and Hugh Henderson will receive The Eugene A. Bettiol, Jr. Distinguished Citizen award.

Chamber Executive Director Barbara Ann Heegan said Wednesday about 200 tickets had been sold.

“It’s my first annual banquet as executive director, and it’s been wonderful planning this event with our special projects committee,” Heegan said.

“I think that it’s just going to be a wonderful celebration,” she said. “We will have a little entertainment from a group called Eight is Enough that’s going to sing a cappella.”

The annual dinner will also feature a dual entrée dinner for the first time, with prime rib and chicken cordon bleu with hollandaise sauce being served.

The dinner will begin at 5:45 p.m.
