NOVA Banquet Recognizes the Service of Neighborhood Volunteers
The 2012 Neighborhood Organization Volunteer Awards (NOVA) banquet recognized those who went above and beyond in the last year to improve our community. Modeled after the theme, “It’s a Wonderful Life,” the event highlighted what our city might look like without our neighborhood volunteers.
Volunteers from 15 neighborhood associations and our Neighborhood Resource Center were represented. The City of Springfield was the recipient of the 2012 Reaching for the Stars Award in recognition of its outstanding partnership and commitment to neighborhood betterment and the mission of Community Partnership.
