This year, the Chamber is pleased to announce the renaming of their Community Champion Awards to honor longtime Chamber member and friend to all: Stephen D. Jones, Vice President of Community Development at Jeanne D'Arc Credit Union, who recently passed away.
Steve was heavily involved with the Greater Lowell Chamber for well over a decade. He served on the Chamber Board of Directors for eight years, three of those years as board Co-Chair and Chairman. More recently, Steve served as an Ambassador for the Chamber.
Pamela Huntley, from Lowell General Hospital, current Chair of the Greater Lowell Chamber Board of Directors states, "Renaming our Community Champion award to honor Steve Jones is such a wonderful way to honor a true community champion. Steve served the Greater Lowell community for so many years in such a caring positive way; no one deserves this more than Steve."
The Greater Lowell Chamber will be honoring Steve Jones at their 22nd Annual Membership Meeting on November 16th during the Stephen Jones Community Champion Award Ceremony. This year's Stephen Jones Community Champion Award Winners are:
Billerica - Jim Marshall, Marshall's Autobody
Chelmsford - John Harrington
Dracut - David Paquin
Lowell - Jim Lichoulas, Mill No. 5
Tyngsborough - Chaz Doughty
Westford - Logan Data
The Greater Lowell Chamber's 22nd Annual Membership Meeting will take place on Wednesday, November 16th from 6-9pm at Lenzi's in Dracut. Individual tickets and tables are available.

STEVE JONES LEGACY FUND
Mark Cochran, President and CEO of Jeanne D'Arc Credit Union, announced the Steve Jones Legacy Fund. The Credit Union is hoping to raise $100,000 in order to keep Steve's memory alive and to have funds enough to annually distribute the earnings to the non-profits that were dear to Steve. If successful, they would then be able to share Steve's legacy in perpetuity!
