Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce Presents Annual Awards

Past-presidents Todd Lattimer and Eric Williams presented the 2010 Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce Annual Awards December 9 at the Hilton Springfield.  Local businesses and citizens are honored each year for their efforts and achievements throughout the year based on nominations from the Greater Springfield community.

The Robert J McDonough Business Owner of the Year award was presented to Mark and Helen Russell, owners of Metro Run & Walk, for excelling in the promotion of their business and for their contributions to the Greater Springfield community.  Metro Run & Walk specializes in shoes, apparel and accessories for runners, walkers, people with an active lifestyle, and those in the quest for daily comfort.

The Greater Springfield Chamber Public Service award was presented to Detective Matthew Bestick for his dedicated service to the Greater Springfield community.  Detective Bestick serves the Franconia District Police Station.  He was recognized by the Chamber for working above and beyond the call of duty with continued follow up well after a crime has been solved.   

The Corporate Citizen award was presented to MVLE for demonstrating a strong involvement to better the quality of life in the Greater Springfield area.  MVLE has been building community partnerships since 1971 when a group of volunteers began serving a handful of individuals with disabilities.

Receiving the Chamber’s highest citizenship honor was Jim Hickey of North Springfield.  Jim received the 2010 Herbert C. Hunter Citizen of the Year award for his volunteer work at Lake Accotink Park, Springfield Days and the Braddock District.  This award is given in memory of Mr. Hunter, a long-time resident and owner of the Hunter Motel.

The awards are presented each December at the Chamber’s Annual Dinner.
