Community Awards Dinner February 24th


Corcoran Neighborhood would not be the same place without the many leaders, who give time and their skills to building upon the strengths of this neighborhood. Every year, CNO hosts our Community Awards Dinner to celebrate the work that has occurred over the past year by dedicated leaders.

Join your neighbors at CNO’s Community Awards Dinner on Wednesday, February 24th. Dinner will begin at 6:00 pm at Corcoran Park (3334 20th Ave S), accompanied by music. Kabomelette owners and Corcoran Neighbors, Greg and Chelsea Miller, will cater the dinner.

A program will feature neighbors toasting other neighbors who have shown outstanding volunteer leadership in the Corcoran neighborhood during the past year, or over their lifetime. Community leaders are folks who undertake large- or small-scale efforts, gestures of goodwill, and leadership that benefits our neighborhood.
