ROSELLE – The Roselle Urban Enterprise Zone will host its first annual holiday party and business awards ceremony on Dec. 11 at noon at the Cavalier Banquet Hall, 2401 Wood Avenue.
Five Roselle UEZ businesses will be honored for their dedication to the Roselle business community. Awards will be presented in the following categories:
• Business of the Year
• New Business of the Year
• Excellence in Innovation
• Commitment to Excellence and Quality
• Community Service Award
Guest speakers will give the business community an update on various UEZ programs. Artie Smallwood from Comcast will discuss the UEZ’s television commercials as well as the Toys for Tots program. John Fortuna from Renaissance Communications will present the series of “Roselle UEZ Business Minute” interviews he produced.
The series features interviews with seven Roselle business owners and is broadcast on Roselle’s municipal access television station, Channel 34. A second video series, featuring interviews with seven more business owners, will be filmed in December.
“Roselle is lucky enough to have a wonderful group of business owners who truly care about the success of the town,” said Mayor Garrett Smith. “Those businesses deserve recognition for their excellence and for their commitment to Roselle.”
The award winners will not be announced prior to the ceremony.
Eighteen Roselle businesses will also receive the UEZ Founders Award, for businesses that have been members of the UEZ since it was established in Roselle in 2002.
The holiday party is free and open to everyone. Lunch will be served. For more information, contact UEZ Coordinator Harry Wyatt at 1-908-259-3001.
