The Greenwich Chamber of Commerce held the annual awards luncheon to honor and celebrate outstanding business leaders and volunteers in the community.
"Business people help our town thrive, this is our day to say thank you to them for making our town so economically vibrant," said Marcia O'Kane, Executive Director of the Greenwich Chamber of Commerce.
The Greenwich Chamber of Commerce is continuing to grow.
"With over 30 members just joining this year alone in the first 3 months so there is a buzz about town," said Scott Weiner, Chairman of the Board.
And the business and volunteer leaders are making a big impact on the town.
"Continue to do what you're doing in supporting all the various agencies and services and attracting more people to come because Greenwich is a desirable place and it is desirable because of who you are and what you have done to contribute to make it so," said First Selectman Peter Tesei.
The awards spanned from business leadership awards to public service awards and for the first time this year the Malcolm S. Pray Excellence in Business Award which was given to Shep and Ian Murray of Vineyard Vines.
