Calexico Chamber recognizes special residents

(And the Lava Lamp goes to…..)….Community members who have gone the extra mile.

The Calexico Chamber of Commerce hosted the 2013 Lava Lamp Awards ceremony Thursday evening. The ceremonies were held at the Carmen Durazo Cultural Arts Center. As usual, turnout was exceptional. Three Lava Lamps were presented this year. One went to former Mexican Consul in Calexico Gina Cruz Blackledge. She was honored for her work in international relations, being active in women’s issues and her over-all goodwill. Former Calexico Police Chief Jim Neujahr was honored for his outstanding dedication to law enforcement. The third Lava Lamp went to the Joe Acuna family for Pioneer Family Business in Calexico.
