Gems of Our Community

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

These are the gems of our community! 

Each year, we’ll ask for your help uncovering these gems, asking you to nominate 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.
