Chamber will honor North Shore leaders

DANVERS — The North Shore Chamber of Commerce will recognize eight local leaders at its second annual North Shore Distinguished Leaders dinner Wednesday night at the Danversport Yacht Club.

The chamber received dozens of nominations from the community for the award, which recognizes residents who exhibit great leadership, a commitment to social responsibility, strong community involvement and proven economic impact.

“The award honors people who are making a difference on the North Shore in a significant way,” said Karen Andreas, publisher of The Salem News and 2012 chairwoman of the chamber. “It was difficult to narrow down the nominations. They were truly all tremendous.”

After several meetings, a special chamber committee pared down the nominations and selected eight individuals for the honor. They are: Henry and Donna Bertolon, Carl Berry of C.P. Berry Homes, retiring Senate Majority Leader Fred Berry, Tim Collins of EBSCO Publishing, Robert Lappin of Shetland Properties, Joanne Patton of Green Meadows Farm, and Dr. Richard Wylie of Endicott College.

The dinner, which will be held from 5 to 8 p.m., will also feature a talk from Stephen Crosby, the chairman of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission. Crosby’s appearance was rescheduled from an earlier date.

More than 500 business and community leaders are expected to attend the event. Tickets are still available.
