The Mid-County Citizens Advisory Board and the Wheaton Urban District Advisory Committee will celebrate the accomplishments of individuals, businesses and civic associations through their annual community awards Wednesday during the 32nd Annual Wheaton & Kensington Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet at Hollywood East Café, 1160 Viers Mill Road, Wheaton.

This year’s awards recipients include:

  • Outstanding Business Leader of the Year: Omar Lazo, owner of Los Chorros – a long standing Wheaton restaurant and community meeting place.
  • Best Property Improvement of the Year: BeClaws, a new Cajun/Asian fusion restaurant on University Blvd.
  • Citizen of the Year: Rev. Adam Snell, Senior Pastor at St. Paul’s Methodist Church in Kensington for his work in helping to eradicate hunger at the local level.
  • Civic Association of the Year: Aspen Hill Homeowners Group for their success in coalescing their communities through grassroots organizing.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to pause and acknowledge the oftentimes unsung efforts and successes of the residents, businesses and civic associations in our community,” said Luisa Montero, Mid-County Regional Service Center director.

This year’s Chamber event will also honor fallen Officer Noah Leotta, a Montgomery County Police 4th District officer who was killed in the line of duty this past December. Police Chief Thomas Manger will be guest speaker.
