Municipal Award Recipients
The red carpet was rolled out at the Paradise Double Ice Complex on April 9 for the 29th Annual Town of Paradise Municipal Awards. Held to celebrate Volunteer Week, the Awards recognized and acknowledged the Town's most outstanding residents, groups and businesses in the areas of athleticism, volunteerism, and businesses excellence.

Each year the Municipal Awards are an opportunity to come together as a community to celebrate and showcase all the remarkable work that our residents have accomplished. This year the theme for Volunteer Week was "The Volunteer Factor Helps Lift Communities", and we certainly see that happening in our Town. Thank you to all of our great volunteers, and congratulations to all of our Municipal Award recipients.
