In 2008 the Foundation inaugurated its Distinguished Citizen Award, to be given to local community members who have made exceptional contributions and attained noteworthy achievements, while giving back to the community. All members of our community are invited to come to the reception as we celebrate and honor the award recipient at this special Foundation event.
