The Trenton Civic Commission’s annual City Awards Banquet will be held at the Chateau on the River at Elizabeth Park again this year. The group hopes to attract tables of 10 for $250, or $25 per ticket, to recognize some of Trenton’s finest citizens. The buffet meal also includes an open bar.
For more than four decades now, the Trenton Civic Commission has annually recognized outstanding Trenton citizens for their contribution to our community. Awards are bestowed in several categories. The nomination deadline was Dec. 1. The award categories and descriptions include:
Trentonite of the Year: This is an individual who has provided extraordinary leadership and service to the entire Trenton community.
Good Neighbor of the Year: This is an individual or family who has distinguished themselves through their outstanding contributions to their neighborhood.
Senior Citizen of the Year: This is an individual who is at least 65 years of age by Dec. 31, 2017, and has served our community and residents with their time and efforts.
Outstanding Woman: This woman, who is age 60 years or younger on Dec. 31, 2017, and has contributed their time and energy to benefit the community.
