SUMMIT, NJ - Two Summit institutions -- each having contributed significantly to the quality of life in the Hilltop City -- will be among those honored when the Suburban Chamber of Commerce hosts their Service Awards Dinner March 25 at The Grand Summit Hotel.
The TryCAN Program, a collaboration between Summit, Berkeley Heights, New Providence, and other nearby communities, and based at the Summit Community Center, will be recognized in the Public Service Organization category. TryCAN offers a comprehensive array of recreation programs for youth with special needs or those who need special accommodations. The pram does not collect non-resident fees, and all are welcome.
David L. Hughes who, for more than four decades served in Summit city government administration, will receive the Silver Service Award. Hughes recently retired after occupying the post of City Clerk for the past 40 years.
Also honored will be Emi Havas of Paperfolio, who will receive the Public Service Award.
