One of the things that makes the greater Pascack Valley such a wonderful place to live and work are those who actually reside here. One of many activities the Greater Pascack Valley Chamber of Commerce has the pleasure of sponsoring is the annual Citizen of the Year Awards. Each year, the GPVCOC honors a person (or persons) who the chamber feels exemplifies good citizenship and shows an admirable commitment to the community. Each of the recipients below deserves recognition for their contributions to the greater Pascack Valley. We applaud their efforts to make the greater Pascack Valley a better place to live and work.

What are you doing the day *before* Mother’s Day this year? How about joining us for a fun-filled family event including a gourmet brunch, tricky trays, silent auctions and more.
“Caring for the Community” is a benefit event being co-sponsored by the GPVCOC and Shelter Our Pets. Part of the proceeds from this fun-filled event will go towards providing scholarships to high school seniors in the greater Pascack Valley. The other part of the proceeds will help to provide a specialized service, offering loving care and shelter to pets of abuse victims, either with a foster family or at an area kennel, until they can be reunited with their owners. This event is for members and non-members alike.
