Prospectus Berco marked another exceptional event at the 22nd Annual Awards Dinner, held at the Crowne Plaza on April 27, 2014. The tables were packed as 275 guests came together to recognize program participants and community supporters for their outstanding service. Appropriately themed “Here We Grow Again”, we celebrated the expansion of our facility with the purchase and renovation of our newest building on Kutztown Road.
The awards presentation commenced with the Community Awards. These awards recognize persons or businesses who have contributed positively to the lives of the individuals involved with Prospectus Berco.
