With the return of fall brings the return of the annual Barry Indik Memorial Awards to honor individuals who have shown outstanding dedication, service and friendship to the South Brunswick community.
This year's honorees are Donald DeMaio, who is an active volunteer with the South Brunswick Social Service and the Senior Center; and Arthur Robinson, a member of the South Brunswick Board of Education and past member of the planning board.
The awards will be presented at CIL’s Annual Independence Ball on Saturday, Nov. 2 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Princeton.
The CIL began in 1984 as a community-based, non-profit organization with the mission of empowering developmentally disabled adults to live independent, productive lives in the community.
One of CIL’s primary goals was housing, and it developed a clear direction through the efforts, energy and expertise of the late Dr. Indik. The award is a tribute to his work to improve the lives of all people in South Brunswick.
"Barry Indik was a man who involved himself in the community," said CIL Director Linda King last year. "He participated and gave of his time and expertise. The Barry Indik Award symbolizes the essence of everyone’s ability and obligation to be involved and give back to the community in which you live."Last year the Indik Award recognized the work of Kendall Park residents Evelyn Catoe, Larry and Gilda Gildenberg.
