The Raven Awards for 2019 and 2020 will be celebrated at a ceremony on Sept. 1 at the Ravenna Football Stadium from 6-8 p.m. The awards honor local businesses, business owners and residents, giving special recognition for new businesses.
The awards have been a tradition for over a decade, but the chamber’s executive director Ryann Kuchenbecker said a Ravenna High School scholarship category has been added.
“There is so much success within Ravenna, and we are here to celebrate by honoring our community as a whole.”
