Springville Chamber recognizes outstanding businesses and individuals
The Springville Area Chamber of Commerce held its annual awards dinner Saturday, Feb. 3 and there was no shortage of town pride. Several businesses and individuals were recognized for their achievements and community service efforts.
Here are the nominees.
Community Service Individual Joe Emerling
Student of the Year
Citizen of the Year
4 Under Forty
Reed Braman Melissa Frank Scott Kearns Jessica Schuster Community Service Business LJ Grand Livery Stables
Nonprofit of the Year
Concord Historical Society
Small Business of the Year
Business of the Year
Emerling Dealerships was awarded Business of the Year for their years of providing jobs and giving back to the local economy since 1938. Most recently the groundbreaking of the new Emerling Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM will keep the economy booming in the area.
Nonprofit of the Year went to the Concord Historical Society and Don Tober, trustee, accepted the award. The Concord Historical Society has accomplished so much this year. In two years, they created a Heritage Building on the back side of the Mercantile where the band plays. In there you can see a replica of downtown Springville from the early 1920s to 1950s with rooms and rooms of history waiting to be seen.
Kara Kane, who received the Citizen of the Year Award, is the jack of all trades. If she’s not being a mom, or working at Bertrand Chaffee Hospital to promote healthcare efforts – she’s probably encouraging community togetherness with the Be Neighborly Springville group on Facebook and the Free Little Book Libraries project just to name a few.
