20 nominations for OWN Spirit Awards Nov. 17
Twenty nominations have been submitted for the first-ever Organization of Westside Neighbors (OWN) Spirit Awards,
according to Sallie Clark.
The awards, going to home and business owners who have fixed up their Westside properties, will be presented at the next OWN town meeting Thursday, Nov. 17 in the West Center.
Clark, a Westside business owner and District 3 county commissioner, is organizing the awards for OWN on a volunteer basis. OWN's stated goal is to make the awards annual, so as to encourage Westsiders who are taking care of their properties. The cut-off for entries this year was Oct. 31.
Several judges, including City Council member Randy Purvis, are being lined up to decide the winners, who will receive certificates from OWN, Clark said.
The OWN meeting Nov. 17 will begin at 7 p.m. The public is invited.
