Nevada City’s Chamber of Commerce has awarded one of its own employees with its annual outstanding community service award.

Cindy Moon, the chamber’s administrative assistant, was announced Tuesday as the recipient of the 2013 Elza Kilroy Award, which was established in 1969 to be annually bestowed on a citizen whose efforts help make Nevada City a better community.

The Chamber’s board of directors selected Moon for the award to honor her dedication and support of Nevada City.

“The board felt that she really has Nevada City in her heart, and the Chamber appreciates everything she does to keep Nevada City a vibrant community,” said Chamber Executive Director Cathy Whittlesey in the announcement.

Moon is a lifelong resident of Nevada County and currently organizes the flower baskets, Christmas lights and the chamber’s Nevada County Fair Booth, as well as helping with the chamber’s events such as Summer Nights, Victorian Christmas, Mardi Gras and Fourth of July.

The Kilroy Award is one of the several annual awards presented by the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce.

The Nevada City Farmers Market is being honored with the Dr. Leland and Sally Lewis Visual Arts Award.

Jed Dixon is the recipient of the 2013 Dr. Leland and Sally Lewis Performing Arts Award.

The Crazy Horse Saloon was recognized with the annual Stan Halls Architectural Award.

Saul Rayo and Elena Powell are the recipients of the Chamber’s 2013 Live Music Award.

The Commercial Street Boardwalk was chosen as the recipient of the W. Lon Cooper New Construction Award.

The award winners were nominated and selected by the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.

The awards will be presented at the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce 112th annual Installation and Awards Dinner Jan. 25, at the Miners Foundry.
