Footprints Award to be given at NCCF’s annual meeting

The Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation (NCCF) will hold its 27th annual meeting on Monday, June 17, at 4 p.m. The meeting will take place at the JCC Training & Conference Facility on Bennett Road in Dunkirk.

The highlight of the meeting will be the presentation of the “George B. Weaver Jr. Footprints Award” to Stephen and Susan Cobb of Fredonia. This award honors those who have left footprints for others in the community to follow in the areas of philanthropy and service.

The meeting will also include the election of new Board and Voting Members and a review of 2012 activities. A reception will follow, featuring hors d’oeuvres by the Beavertail Catering.
