HENDERSON, KY (Feb. 14, 2018) – The Downtown Henderson Partnership is now accepting nominations
for its annual awards to be presented at the 24th Annual Awards Breakfast on March 22, 2018.
Awards include Excellence in Preservation, Business of the Year, Downtowner of the Year, Volunteer of
the Year, and the Heart of Downtown, presented annually to an individual or family who has worked
diligently and successfully over a number of years for the long-term growth and development of
downtown Henderson.
“Our annual awards breakfast gives us an opportunity to recognize the success and progress of our
downtown the past year and honor those who made it possible,” said Jennifer Drennan, chairwoman of
the Downtown Henderson Partnership board of directors. “We are seeking the public’s assistance in
identifying those worthy of recognition, by nominating a person(s) or business for one of the available
awards. We look forward to this year’s celebration.”
