65th Assembly District Recognition Awards

Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva (D – Fullerton) proudly hosted the first annual 65th Assembly District Recognition Awards, to honor individuals who have provided services and exemplified characteristics valued in the 65th Assembly District.

The event was hosted in the City of Buena Park at Elher’s Senior Center to honor local businesses, nonprofits, veterans, gentleman, women, and holocaust survivors.  Due to the pandemic, many events and celebrations honoring the community members in the 65th Assembly District were prevented or cancelled.  The fantastic work done by all of the recipients this past year, was a true display of perseverance and commitment.  

“I have been inspired and moved by the wonderful stories that all the honorees have shared with our office,” said Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva. “Sadly, the pandemic has not allowed many of us to have a cause for celebration, but the following honorees have provided us a great reason to gather together and celebrate their great service and accomplishments in the community!”

The 65th Assembly District Recognition Event was coordinated by the office of Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva and honored individuals who have excelled in their contributions to the community. The event recognized honorees in several categories and all were presented with State Assembly Resolutions.
