Congratulations to 2005 Lincoln alumnus and Manitowoc Ald. Jeremiah Novak for winning the local chamber's "Champion Award" for his efforts to improve downtown Manitowoc.
Novak received the award Tuesday, Feb. 6 at the Chamber of Manitowoc County's 101st annual award dinner at the Holiday Inn.
Novak helped with establishing the "Grow it Forward Site" for the community built garden; planting flower pots and distributing them from downtown Manitowoc to the SS Badger dock; and sitting on the steering committee for the Lakeshore Balloon Glow. He also paved the way for an outdoor ice rink in Burger Park and created the Ice on Eighth event.
