Because of COVID, this year’s Community Appreciation Awards event was held virtually on Facebook. Citrus Heights Mayor Steve Miller said a few words, and Citrus Heights Police Chief Ron Lawrence, honored Officer Greg Boehm as the 2019 Police Officer of the Year. Sacramento Metro Fire Chief Todd Harms honored Captain Joe Schmitt as the 2019 Firefighter of the Year. Cindy MacComack was honored as the 2019 Ambassador of the Year.
We said good bye to our Past President Ilene Martzen, and then, we heard from some of our new Board members why they choose to live and work in Citrus Heights. The event ended with our new Board President Amanda Camacho telling us what she and the Chamber Board hope to accomplish in 2021.
