The Newtown Business Association at its January meeting announced its Business of the Year Award recipient and recognized several of its members with special awards for their community service, humanitarianism, and distinguished service.

 

Dave Marcolla, the president of the NBA and owner of Dave Marcolla Realty, presented the awards during the organization's monthly breakfast meeting held inside the historic Newtown Theatre.

 

The Business of the Year Award is given annually by the NBA to an "exemplary" NBA-member business for helping to fulfill the NBA's mission of promoting Newtown as a great place to live, shop, and work.

 

The NBA's Humanitarian Award - went to Priya Trivdi, the owner of Guru's Fine Indian Restaurant on Sycamore Street for everything she has done for the community. Trivdi was unable to attend. She closed her restaurant earlier this year to travel to India to finalize an adoption she has been working on for years.

johnmacknewtown's insight:

 

Speaking of humanitarianism: I attended the award ceremony and spoke to several members about the revival of the Newtown Human Relations Commission. My hope is that the NBA will be more involved in the Commission by appointing an official liaison to attend meetings and report back. The NBA can be a great partner in furthering the mission of the HRC to prevent discrimination in employment in Newtown.
