Announcing Our 2019 Milestone Honorees
The Renaissance Milestone Awards were established to recognize the contributions of the many people, businesses, and institutions that help make this revitalization possible. We are pleased to announce the honorees for our 10th Dundalk Renaissance Milestone Awards event:
The 2019 “Renaissance Cornerstone Award,” will be presented to Key Brewing in recognition of the many ways their Dundalk-based brewery and its marketing efforts have contributed to greater visibility and a fun, playful image for our community that appeals to current residents and helps us attract the next generation.
Three 2019 “Renaissance Milestone Awards” will also be presented by Dundalk Renaissance to community and business leaders for their roles in nurturing Dundalk’s healthy and vibrant future:
- Larry Bannerman – for his leadership and advocacy with the Turner Station Conservation Teams in promoting and improving Turner Station, greater Dundalk, and our environment.
- Tammy Tricario — for her promotion and support of multiple charitable efforts benefitting individuals and organizations in greater Dundalk as Manager of Pinland Bowling on Dundalk Ave.
- David Grosscup – Maryland Professional Karate Association, for his mentorship of many young people in our community over the years.
We are also presenting four 2019 Renaissance Gemstone Awards to students who have made a difference in our community.
The Gemstone Awardees will be announced in the upcoming month.
“Our 2019 Milestone honorees demonstrate the wide range of ways that individuals and businesses make Dundalk a better place for us all and contribute to a vibrant future. I am so proud and inspired by their example,” said Executive Director Amy Menzer.
