Additionally there are two awards that are given specifically by the Board of Directors. They are the Lifetime Achievement Award and, in it's inaugural year, the Blue Stone Award. The Lifetime Achievement Award is given to an individual that has made a strong commitment to the City of Euclid Business Community and its Residents. They have given many years of time & dedication to various organizations in the City of Euclid.
The Blue Stone Award is a new award that is being presented this year. It was created to honor those businesses & individuals that made a significant, yet specific, contribution to the City of Euclid in
2008. Euclid was once a quarry industry and known specifically for its Blue Stone. That industry has helped shape Euclid into what it is today and we feel that the actions of these recipients will also help to shape Euclid's future. All of the winners will be honored at our Annual Dinner which is on Thursday, March 12, 2009.
