Community Action Inc. in Haverhill is accepting nominations for its Community Champion Award, to be presented during its Community Recognition Night and Roast on May 15 at the Renaissance Golf Club.
Nominations of area residents who exemplify the Community Action values of building hope and offering assistance with respect and understanding will be accepted until April 9. Six candidates will be recognized for their contributions to the community and to improving the quality of life and well-being of an individual, family or community at the event.
“This is our way of bringing the community together to highlight the similarities among us, across many unique and different passions,” said CAC Executive Director John Cuneo.
Community Action serves residents in Amesbury, Boxford, Georgetown, Groveland, Haverhill, Merrimac, Newbury, Newburyport, Rowley, Salisbury, and West Newbury. Community Action selected Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce President Sven Amirian as its honored guest at the event, acknowledging his strong drive for inclusion of individuals and businesses in community development and his ability to bridge many conversations for the greater good of the region.
The evening will conclude with comedy and a roast of Amirian by nationally-known comedian Paul Nardizzi.
