Awards Banquet – APWA Florida – Big Bend Branch

APWA Rodeo 828

Next year will be the APWA Big Bend’s 11th Annual Project Award Banquet that will be held on March 7, 2019. The cost of tickets is $30 per person. Mr. Deji Ajose-Adeogun, is our Banquet Committee Chairman.

The Banquet is to recognize those who will win “Project of the year” awards as well as recognize those members of the Big Bend APWA who had their anniversaries. Last year we celebrated those members who have been national members for 5, 15 and 30 years. In 2015 year Tony Park was given a lifetime membership by APWA.

The award banquet also seeks to enhance the prestige of the often-unsung heroes of our society-the professionals who serve the public good every day and night, through disasters and emergencies, all with quiet dedication and we recognizing their projects and contribution to our Big Bend Area. The last few years have seen our Public Works in action, and this year is no different with the Hurricanes. So join us as we recognize our unsung heroes
