It's Awards Season!

For the second year in a row, we will be awarding the Good Neighbor and Good Business Awards in May! As you may recall, we decided to deviate from the traditional award schedule so that we can truly devote our attention to honoring the champions of our neighborhood without being overshadowed by our annual Scholarship Award ceremony, which will take place (as usual) during the June Meeting. Cedar Grove has always been a community held together by good neighbors and strong, responsible businesses. This is our one opportunity to shine a little light on the great work that is being done day in and day out. Please help us recognize these heroes in our midst by nominating a good neighbor and/or a good business today! Applications can be submitted online at If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at
