Since 1975, a long-standing tradition in our town has been the Haddonfield Civic Association Annual Town Dinner. The Driscoll Award recognizes individuals or organizations that have made a lasting, positive impact on our town in a volunteer capacity. The Award acknowledges an uncommon effort made on behalf of the community, with the intention that those who receive it will inspire others, and that it will encourage broader participation in civic activities in Haddonfield.
