Irondequoit Chamber of Commerce Announces 2014 Person of the Year

Dec 29, 2014

The Irondequoit Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that Peter and Anne Kelderhouse have both been selected to share the honor as our 2014 Persons of the Year. The award will be presented to Peter and Anne at the Chamber's Annual Awards Dinner on January 23, 2015, at the Rochester Yacht Club.

The Person of the Year honor was developed by our Business of the Month committee, which saw the need to honor contributions of individual residents. The Chamber received a letter of nomination for Peter and Anne Kelderhouse, signed by sixteen members of the Irondequoit community, detailing the couple's many and varied contributions to Irondequoit. Though it is unusual for our award to recognize two people at once, we need only to refer to the nominating letter describing them as “an inseparable team."

Peter and Anne have generously given their time to Sunset House, the Irondequoit Library Foundation, Rochester Rotary, and Saint Cecilia Church. Their important roles in these community organizations, plus their dedication to friends and neighbors, is but a short synopsis of Peter and Anne's endless contributions providing leadership, energy, and inspiration to the entire Irondequoit community.

The award will be presented on Friday, January 23, 2014, during the Irondequoit Chamber's Annual Awards Dinner celebration at the Rochester Yacht Club. Tickets to the event are available from the Irondequoit Chamber of Commerce by calling 585-234-1884.
