Community Awards Reception

What are the Community Impact Awards?

Dorothy E. Mawell - CopyThe Delta Township Community Impact Awards Program was created to help recognize the significant contributions our citizens, businesses, and organizations make to our community and celebrate their accomplishments. It highlights those individuals who have gone above and beyond to make Delta Township a great place to live, work, and play through service to their community.

Founded by former Delta Township Board Member and 2017 Legacy Award Recipient Dorothy E. Maxwell and nurtured by a group of community-minded volunteers and staff, this program will celebrate its 17th anniversary recognizing the best that Delta Township has to offer.
