The Xenia Area Chamber of Commerce has annually given four different awards to honor a select few of our members for their service and the time they devote to make our community a stronger and better place. We are also excited to announce the unveiling of the Barb Zajbel Xenia Ambassador Award which is awarded to a person that can be a chamber member or non-chamber member of the Xenia community. Any chamber member may nominate as many people or businesses they would like for each of the awards. We encourage you to nominate everyone you feel encompasses any of the criteria for the awards. All nominations are due by December 10, 2013.

Karen Shirk, Founder of Xenia-based charity 4 Paws For Ability, had a dream from the beginning to create a place of opportunity for a large segment of people who were often overlooked or under-served in the service dog industry. Her dream was a big one, but one step at a time she pushed forward and was able to create the organization we know today as 4 Paws For Ability. There were plenty of challenges and endless amounts of hard work, but Karen has always been fueled by a higher purpose.
Her unshakeable commitment is why we are now able to say, “Happy 15th Anniversary 4 Paws!”
