Editor's Note: The following is a news release issued by the Mercer Regional Chamber of Commerce.
From small to large, all improvements and expansions are applauded. Economic growth and redevelopment represents the signs that businesses created positive effects on local communities.
The Mercer Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Lawrence Chapter in partnership with Lawrence Township’s Growth and Redevelopment Committee will be hosting the 14th Annual Awards Breakfast on Oct. 10 at Quaker Bridge Mall.
These awards are presented each year to businesses, individuals, and civic groups that have enhanced the community in a special way; for job growth, expanding the tax base of the township, building or renovating a structure that improves the quality of life in the community, or by participating in local activities that benefit the Town and its residents.

We commend Lawrence Township for continuing to recognize those organizations and individuals that have a positive effect on the community and the region, " stated Mercer Chamber President and CEO Robert D. Prunetti.
