The 35th Annual Excellence in Community Development Awards

Join us for our annual Excellence in Community Development Awards Banquet where we celebrate the strength of our community and honor individuals and organizations who have made extraordinary efforts to improve our region.  This years theme is Champions in Action and most would agree that there are many around us.  You can buy a table or a set of individual tickets.  We are still seeking sponsors and would love to highlight you and/or your business at such a well attended and important event - recognizing our Champions in Action!
