The Grandville Jenison Chamber Community Awards is a chance for the chamber to recognize and celebrate amazing residents in our community, both young and young at heart, who volunteer their time and talents and give so selflessly to their fellow neighbors.
In celebration of the Grandville Jenison Chamber’s 10 year anniversary, we have added an additional Good Neighbor Award and moved our celebration to Celebration Cinema Rivertown as a FREE community event.
Award Winners and Scholarship Recipients will be celebrated at the Chamber’s Community Awards Ceremony held on Thursday, April 25 from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm at Celebration Cinema, Rivertown. The event is free to attend and open to the public but registration is required.
