The Gems of the Community Award is back again this year and is presented by Norwood Together to recognize Norwood residents who have volunteered, and made significant contributions to their neighborhood, school, or community during the year.

These are the gems of our community!

Help us uncover these gems by nominating the people you see doing good things in Norwood. This recognition is a way to highlight the accomplishments of our city’s volunteer community leaders, express gratitude for their generous donation of time and talent, and inspire others to become involved in Norwood.

Join us to celebrate our  2022 winners.  This year’s event presented by The Ventura Builder’s Group will be held at The Ventura, 4557 Montgomery Road at 5:30 on February 23. Please join us in celebrating our city’s volunteers.  Register to attend HERE.
