The Sugar Grove Chamber of Commerce & Industry and Village of Sugar Grove are proud to co-sponsor a distinguished award program recognizing outstanding contributions of individual effort or group effort by those who continually give of their time, dedication and talents to the community. Whether through individual community service projects and programs or numerous community organizations, the “Citizen of the Year” exemplifies that pioneering spirit in helping our village grow and prosper.

  • Those who lend their leadership and vision, organizing countless fundraisers and programs to better our schools, parks, libraries, historical sites and civic centers.
  • Those who volunteer their time helping community groups and programs organize, implement and assist in achieving their purposes and goals.
  • Those who serve on numerous committees researching, reporting, and educating our community regarding issues that directly impact our village.
  • Those who dedicate themselves to serving on numerous boards lending their expertise and guidance in improving the economic development of our village.

The list above is by no means all-inclusive of the contributions that have a direct impact on our growing community. We welcome those submissions that show true dedication, innovation, and a pioneering spirit in their commitment to our community.

An award presentation will be scheduled as part of the evening event on Friday, July 25, 2014 at the Sugar Grove Corn Boil in Volunteer Park, where much of the community will be in attendance and the “Citizen of the Year” will be honored with an engraved plaque as well as other Thank You gifts donated by our local businesses.
