The Irvington Community Council is pleased to announce the 2020 Founder’s Awards. Since 2011, the awards have recognized individuals, organizations, and businesses that have made significant contributions to the overall quality of life in Irvington. The awards are presented every week during the Historic Irvington Halloween Festival, held this year from October 24-31, 2020.

For twenty-seven years of keeping Irvington rolling, for anchoring the revitalization of Irvington, for promoting healthy lifestyles and the bicycle revolution, and for supporting the beloved Zombie Bike Ride and numerous other neighborhood events, the Council awards a Founder’s Award to Scott Irons, owner of Indy Cycle Specialist.

For thirteen years providing slices to Irvington, for making Irvington a destination, for providing walls and walls for so many Irvington artists, and for their tireless dedication to Irvington, the Council awards a Founder’s Award to Nancy Duncan and Mick McGrath and Bob and Laura Stark, owners of Jockamo’s Upper Crust Pizza.

For their tireless dedication to preserving the history and culture of Irvington, including their work with the Irvington Historical Society and their preservation of the Bona Thompson Memorial Center, the Council awards a Founder’s Award to Steve and Sue Barnett.

For her beautiful work that brightens so many Irvington homes and public spaces and for her dedication to keeping Irvington a community of artists, the Council awards a Founder’s Award to Laura Hildreth.

This year’s awards will be presented on Sunday, October 25, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. at the Bona Thompson Memorial Center. Due to COVID-19, exact details of the event are still tentative. Plans also include an art show.
