Distinguished Citizen Dinner

Welcome to a Carnival Celebration for our 47th Annual Distinguished Citizens, the Cristina Family!  

Step right up as we welcome you to the beautiful and historic Hayes Mansion, with carnival entertainment, a Sinatra-style lounge, and midway activities & warming stations.   After our cocktail and heavy hors d’ouevre reception, we will gather indoors in spaced theater-style seating for the formal program and highlight of the evening, our tribute to the Cristinas.  We will then proceed back out to the carnival atmosphere for more robust dining and amusements.   

Please note the family has requested Casual Dress for this Festive occasion!    

To our guests and sponsors, our format this year will feature 2/3 of the event taking place outside, and 1/3 inside with masks required.

The festivities will begin at 5:30, leading into the program at 6:30, with a carnival style celebration woven throughout.   

The Cristinas have led the way in recycling advances for over 30 years.  Established in 1991 to recycle yard trimmings, GreenWaste has made significant contributions that have shaped the solid waste and recycling industry and continues to be at the forefront of innovations for collection and processing technologies.  This is no Oscar the Grouch family, although they do love trash! Their hallmark is Family and Friends, as well as participation in many community and charitable associations throughout The Bay.
