The Little River Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center gave awards to local businesses during its annual dinner meeting on March 14.
The awards given were the Mary Martin Community Service Award, the Emerging Leader of the Year, the Citizen of the Year, and the Member Business of the Year.
Teen Angels of NMBHS received the Mary Martin Community Service Award, which spotlights a nonprofit organization that has outstandingly served the community. The organization consists of volunteers who help youth in need.
The Emerging Leader of the Year distinguishes a community leader aged 40 or below and was awarded to Don Kettner of Crab Catchers. Kettner, who is a co-owner of Crab Catchers, was selected for the award for his efforts in expanding the business as well for being able to attract visitors and audiences in the area by presenting new events at the Little River waterfront.
The Citizen of the Year recognizes an individual who has displayed outstanding service or significant impact in the community. This was awarded to Ron Wilson of the Veteran's Welcome Home & Resource Center, who has been vital to their recent successes, having allocated a significant number of volunteer hours to make certain that the organization would always be available to the veterans.
The business that has shown commitment to the Little River community was awarded the Member Business of the Year and was received by Matt Sedota of Easy 105.9 for their efforts in promoting the community.
