The New Albany Founders Day Community Connection Award was established in 2008 to recognize and showcase the outstanding work and services performed by an area non-profit civic group that serves our community and surrounding area.

The New Albany Founders Day Committee invites the honoree to participate in the annual parade and festival. During the parade, they will be recognized at the grandstand area for their contribution to the community. The honoree is also invited to set up a display showcasing their history and involvement in the community at the festival site.

During a New Albany Village Council meeting, the Mayor of New Albany will be presenting a written proclamation to the honoree for their accomplishments to the community.
