And the Winners at the 41st Annual Community Awards Ceremony are…



The 41st Annual Community Awards took place last Thursday, January 28th virtually. For the first time, the ceremony was FREE to the public and they came out in droves to celebrate all the local Issaquah heroes that gave selflessly of their time, talent and energy to help others in 2020, while building an ever-stronger community and improving the quality of life. And all the while, doing it in a global pandemic!
