At-Large Councilmember Anita Bonds' initiative to recognize the community organizers, leaders and volunteers who contribute to making our city the vibrant community it is. In the Councilmember's words, "This annual event gives us all an opportunity to recognize those in the community. Leaders, neighbors, friends, businesses, and organizations that have contributed and positively impacted the lives of the citizens of the District of Columbia. Our father, Joseph Bowser, was recognized today for his 37 years of service on the Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC). I have included some highlights in this post.
Councilmember Bonds made short remarks and then called the awardees up in groups. Awardees were afforded the opportunity to make short remarks.
