The Annual Mayor’s Breakfast, hosted by the Haddonfield Lions Club, will be held on Saturday, Jan. 18, 2020, at the First Presbyterian Church, 20 Kings Highway East. The event will begin at 9 a.m. Tickets are $10 and will be available at the door. Mayor Neal Rochford will deliver the annual State of the Borough Address and also present the Citizen of the Year award, which recognizes an outstanding member of the Haddonfield community.

The winner is selected by the Citizen of the Year Committee, which is comprised of a group of Haddonfield community members. Nominations are now being accepted. The submission deadline is Tuesday, Dec. 31.

Many outstanding community members have been nominated previously, and the committee is happy to consider both former and new nominees. However, nominations must be current and include the 2020 Nomination Form as a cover sheet, together with one or more statements by those making the recommendation.

Note: All nominees must be Haddonfield residents.

A nomination form can be downloaded by visiting the Haddonfield Lions Club website and clicking on the Citizen of the Year link. Forms are also available at the Haddonfield Information Center or by contacting the Citizen of the Year committee chair, Jack Tarditi, at jtarditi@connerstrong.com. A list of previous Citizen of the Year winners is also on the website.
