The Cut Bank Area Chamber of Commerce waited a long time to honor their Citizen of the Year due to the pandemic cancelling their annual banquet in 2020 and 2021. They decided to name Chris Robinson their 2020 and 2021 Citizen of the Year and President Stephanie Eney presented him with the award during the Lewis and Clark Festival last Friday.

For everyone, including the Cut Bank Area Chamber of Commerce, 2020 was a strange year. It made it tough to continue with regular Cut Bank traditions, including recognizing an outstanding individual in our community. And there are lots of good ones out there.  But this individual we are recognizing is so deserving we are honoring him as the 2020 and 2021 Citizen of the Year!  

Back in March of 2020 when the nominations came in, there was a resounding number of nominations for this individual.  It was so neat to hear over and over again how much this individual gives to our community and in a very selfless way.  

This person really believes in the “Small Town, USA” and simply loves where he lives.  He can always be found rooting on our hometown kids at all sports throughout the year and tirelessly does general upkeep of things around town.  So if you ever look at something and think man, it always looks great . . . it is probably because of this guy.  

He is constantly willing to help others and is the first to offer assistance regardless of who you are.  

One person stated that they learned how to be a good neighbor and a good citizen from this gentleman and his effort in continuously striving to make Cut Bank a great place to live.

Chris Robinson is a very active member of his church. He is a member of the Masonic Lodge and Shriners, as well as a member of the Cut Bank Lions Club. 

He assists with the roadside cleanup every year, counts ballots for Glacier Electric and takes it upon himself to handle the upkeep of the Masonic Lodge, the reader board at the Parkview Center, the metal fence around central park and the community organizations sign at the City Park.  

If you ever wondered who makes sure these things get done, now you know. 

Congratulations to Chris Robinson, the Cut Bank Area Chamber of Commerce’s 2020-2021 Citizen of the Year!
