Chamber to honor outstanding citizens
The Reading-North Reading Chamber of Commerce invites area residents and business owners to its 2011 Outstanding Citizens Awards dinner, scheduled for 5:30 p.m. March 28 at the Hillview Country Club in North Reading. This year’s honorees are Jacquie Carson of Reading, chief executive officer of Sanborn Place, Home Care and Day Services; and Kathleen Walsh of North Reading, vice president of development for the YMCA of Metro North. Walsh has contributed to many North Reading community events outside her position at the Y. She has led successful fund-raising efforts at the Batchelder Elementary School and helped organize a benefit for Jared Coppola of North Reading, who was paralyzed while playing football at St. John’s Prep. Those wishing to attend the dinner are asked to reserve a seat ($65) by March 15. For more information, visit readingnreadingchamber.org or call 781-944-8824.
