This awards program provides the business community with an opportunity to publicly thank those who help maintain the quality of life in the Gaithersburg and Germantown areas.

We invite local businesses, elected & public safety officials & to come and join us as we recognize the heroic deeds of our local law enforcement and fire-rescue workers. These men and women go above and beyond the call of duty to serve our local community and we want them to know we appreciate them and their hard work.
