Pollock Pines shines during awards dinner

EDITOR:

On Wednesday, Nov. 10, I attended the Business Appreciation Awards dinner hosted by the Community Economic Development Association of Pollock Pines and Sportsman’s Hall. Over 100 local business men and women, residents and county and state leaders attended the event, including Supervisor Ray Nutting and a representative from Congressman Tom McClintock’s office, all showing their support for business and economic growth in Pollock Pines.

The keynote speaker was Roger Niello, 5th District assemblyman, owner of the Niello Auto Group, and a charismatic business advocate and activist.

This event marked the third annual awards dinner and the presentation of the fourth Annual Pollock Pines “ED Award.” This year’s recipient is Kenneth Harper, a member of CEDAPP’s Board of Directors, Rotarian, retired IRS investigative agent, and a tireless supporter and advocate of business and economic growth in the community. Ken devotes much of his personal time to the community and to events that help businesses and residents alike in the Pollock Pines area. He is also a generous financial contributor to worthy causes in our community.

At the dinner many other business people, residents and volunteers were recognized for their own dedication to the community throughout the year – too many to list here, but each one an integral part of the success of our community in 2010.

CEDAPP is a steadily growing association that gives tirelessly back to businesses and the community in Pollock Pines, thanks in great part to one of its founders and most active members and directors, Jeanne Harper. Jeanne is the past-principal of Sierra Ridge Middle School in Pollock Pines, and her vision of business giving back to business led her to help form CEDAPP. Pollock Pines, while suffering from the current economic recession, still has a thriving and surviving business community due in part to the efforts of CEDAPP and its members.

As a business owner and resident, I want to extend my congratulations to the ED Award winner and to all the other honorees at this year’s dinner, and my thanks to CEDAPP and the community for the incredible outpouring of support for betterment and quality of life in Pollock Pines.
