For the last few weeks, we have been asking you to tell us about your favorite nurse and what makes them so special. This was all for our 2021 Elite 97 Nurses Banquet, brought to you by Service Chevrolet Cadillac.

Once again, we received a ton of entries. Thank you to everyone who took time out to tell us about their special friend, family member, or a complete stranger who goes above and beyond every day to care for others.

Now, due to the pandemic and the fact that our nurses have been worked to exhaustion, we thought it would be a little much to ask for nurses to take three or four hours out of a night to come to an in-person banquet.

So this year we are having a drive-thru Nurses Banquet. All honorees will be invited to simply zip through the parking lot here at the radio station on Tuesday, September 28 and pick up a hot meal, courtesy of the Petroleum Club, along with a ditty bag filled with great prizes. Oh, and we've got a few surprises too.

If you are one of these fine nurses, we will be in touch with the person or persons who nominated you to pass along information regarding the drive-thru banquet. In some cases, if we have your information, you will be contacted directed as well. If you are one of the honorees and don't hear from anyone by the end of this week (Sept. 24), please email jude@973thedawg.com for all the when and where details.

A big thanks goes out to our friends at Service Chevrolet Cadillac for being our fine title sponsor of this event.

The Elite 97 Nurses Banquet is also presented by Home Furniture Plus Bedding. (By the way, they've got some unbelievably cool for each nurse.)

While much is still unknown about the coronavirus and the future, what is known is that the currently available vaccines have gone through all three trial phases and are safe and effective. It will be necessary for as many Americans as possible to be vaccinated in order to finally return to some level of pre-pandemic normalcy, and hopefully these 30 answers provided here will help readers get vaccinated as soon they are able.
