Pascack Valley “Citizen of the Year” Recipients

Citizen of the Year Awards Dinner
Every year, the chamber sponsor the Citizen of the Year awards dinner where people in the greater Pascack Valley are recognized for their contributions to the community.

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.
