Every year, the Newcastle Chamber of Commerce acknowledges people and businesses who have made a positive impact on the community.

Last week, the chamber released its list for those people, nominating them for the 2016 Diamond Awards.

The event will be held at 7 p.m. on Jan. 19 at The Golf Club at Newcastle, with special guest (and Newcastle resident) Alan White, drummer for the English prog-rock band Yes performing with members of his local band and students from the Liberty High School band. White will be congratulated for his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame while also showcasing he and his wife Gigi’s nonprofit Music Aid Northwest — an organization which supports music education in Washington.

The list of nominees to be honored at the event includes people who have provided excellent customer service, have inspired others in the Newcastle community and youths who have done great service.

The award categories and finalists are as follows:

• Dennis Yarnell Inspiration award: Darren Stott, Sara Biancofiori.

• Business award: ATI Physical Therapy, Autumn Paige Photography.

• Community Leadership award: Marcie Maxwell, John Dulcich.

• Customer Service award: Hope Gonzales, Patrick Manley.
