CRANFORD — Each year the Cranford Chamber of Commerce holds its Pride in Cranford Awards Dinner, to recognize volunteers who have contributed to make Cranford a better community in which to live.
The dinner will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 17, at the Gran Centurians in Clark. The event will start with a cocktail hour at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7 p.m. The cost of the dinner is $35 per person and there will be a cash bar available.
This year the chamber will have two categories in which people can make nominations. In addition to nominations for individuals who have volunteered their time over a period of years, this year the chamber has added a second category.
“We are asking the residents and business owners of Cranford to submit the names of volunteers who went that extra mile to help restore their homes and businesses after Hurricane Irene,” said J. Robert Hoeffler, executive director of the Cranford Chamber of Commerce.
“We have heard many stories of people that experienced much damage during the storm, and how many wonderful volunteers stepped up to help clean and rebuild their homes and businesses in the aftermath of Irene without being asked. We would like to recognize these special people.”
Nomination forms will be available at the Chamber display racks at the Library, Community Center, Two River Bank on Walnut Avenue and the Municipal Building. The forms must be filled out and returned to the Chamber office by Friday, Sept. 14, at 4 Centennial Avenue, Cranford.
