The Aqua Turf transformed into a Mardi Gras celebration on Saturday night as the Greater Southington Chamber of Commerce celebrated their 78th annual dinner. The highlight of the evening of dancing, auctions, and awards was the presentation of a number of community awards.
The chamber honored Rob Flood of Liberty Bank as the Business Person of the Year and Southington High School teacher Nancy Chiero as Employee of the Year. Other honorees were Dave Gold of Liberty Bank; Sandy Fehrs of Calcagni Realty; Lucia Chubet of Daigle, Smith and Chubet; Southington Volunteer Fire Co. 2; Town Councilors Dawn Miceli and Chris Palmieri; 56 Center Street; Cosmo Corner; Lake Compounce; Plantsville Pizza; and the town’s Middle Schools Building Committee.
