For the second consecutive year, Mon Valley Initiative (MVI) is encouraging residents of Mon Valley communities to nominate their neighbors for a “Community Partner Award.”
Since 1990, the awards have been presented by MVI at its annual dinner in October. Last year’s dinner was held as a virtual event due to the COVID-19 pandemic, said Grant Cole, community outreach specialist. This year’s event will be held as a hybrid event — partially in-person and partially online — on Oct. 21, 2021, Cole said.
Community partner awards are particularly being sought from Belle Vernon, Charleroi, Clairton, Donora, Dravosburg, Duquesne, East McKeesport, Elizabeth, Finleyville, Glassport, Homestead, McKeesport, Monongahela, Munhall, New Eagle, North Versailles Township, Rankin, Rostraver Township, Union Township, West Elizabeth, West Homestead and West Mifflin, but any resident of a community that neighbors the Monongahela River may be nominated.
