This year’s Diamond Awards were presented to outstanding members of the community today during the Newcastle Chamber of Commerce’s monthly luncheon.

Five awards are given each year, typically one in each of the following categories: business, youth, senior, education and community.

The chamber of commerce awarded Sandra Wixon, owner of chocolate shop Sweet Decadence, with the business award.

The chamber awarded the youth award to both Clay Strom and Jay Chakravarty. Strom helped co-organize the first Newcastle 5K Run, and Chakravarty with the Boy Scouts.

The chamber presented the senior award to Giles Velte — board member of Newcastle Trails — and it presented the education award to Jane Keskimaki — chair of the Hazelwood Elementary School PTSA.

Finally, the chamber of commerce presented the community award to Grace Stiller, for her extensive volunteer work.
