Our theme for the 23rd Annual Awards Dinner this year – “Hats Off to You!” –articulated exactly how Prospectus Berco decided to acknowledge the award winners. On Sunday, March 29, 2015, we celebrated over 65 award winners for their support, years of service, and exemplary performance. We truly did take our hats off in deference to all the awardees being recognized.
The afternoon was kicked off with a photo stand in which guests could “ham it up” getting their picture taken as they tried on different hats and accessories. Even the wait staff at the Crowne Plaza got in on the action as they served a delicious meal wearing an array of hats.
The awards presentation began as we recognized persons or businesses in the community who have contributed positively to the lives of the individuals involved with Prospectus Berco. Our sincere appreciation goes to the following Community Award winners who have enriched Prospectus Berco with their time, talent, and energy.

Carpenter Technology Corporation was presented the Partner in Success Community Award for their support and dedication over the years to Prospectus Berco.
