NBA Awards for Service in 2021

The Newtown Business Association presented its awards and recognitions for service in 2021 to NBA and community members at their breakfast Zoom meeting on Thursday, January 27, 2021.  2021 was an interesting year for the NBA and its members, due to the COVID pandemic and all the ways it changed the schedule and nature of NBA's usual annual events and meetings.
