The Chase City Chamber of Commerce honored several of the town’s leading citizens at the organization’s annual Awards Banquet at the Mecklenburg Country Club on Thursday. Among the honorees is Dr. Randal Suslick, who joined the ranks of Chase City’s Citizens of the Year.

Suslick moved to the area in 1980 at the behest of Dr. Earle Moore. Before that, he served at various posts in the United States and abroad in the U.S. Navy.

Once in Chase City, he quickly involved himself in the community, joining the town’s Lions Club (he is the current President), and First Baptist Church, where he has served as Sunday school teacher, deacon, and co-director of the First Baptist puppet team and organizer of the annual church-wide canoe trip.

In addition to his medical practice, Suslick is a professor at MCV in the Department of Family Practice.

Suslick enjoys many of the outdoor sports for which Southside Virginia is known. In his free time, he likes to hunt, including bow and black powder hunting, and to water ski. He is also a Civil War history buff, an avid gardener, woodworker and amateur photographer.

Each year, the Chamber selects one area home as “Yard of the Year.” This year the honor went to Raymond and Betty Toone.

Rhonda Wilson was recognized as the winner of the 5th annual Chili Cookoff, which was held at McCallum More Museum and Gardens, and Tim and Trudy Robinette were named Grand Marshals of the 2013 Chase City Christmas Parade.

The evening ended with the naming of the 2013 Chase City Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. They are: Lisa Gillispie, President, Diana Ramsey, Vice President, Shirley Bigger, Treasurer, Braxton Rutledge, Executive Director, Patricia Burton, M J Colgate, Brenda Chapman, Joseph Epps, Patricia Lawson, Marilyn McCluster, Duke Reid, and Joan Wilson.

The evening was emceed by Greg Thrift.
