UPVCC Community and Commerce Awards Presented

            Business members, municipal representatives, and community leaders gathered together to celebrate those that go above and beyond to make a difference in the community at the Upper Perkiomen Valley Chamber of Commerce 20th Annual Community & Commerce Breakfast.

            Held on June 15 at the Perkiomen School, honorees included (pictured above, left to right) Dan Moyer of the Upper Perkiomen School District, recipient of the PerkUp Award for Education; Dr. Douglas G. Pfeiffer of Upper Perk Chiropractic Center | The Center for Nutrition & Wellness, Outstanding Small Business award recipient; and Corporal Jamie Lavin of the Upper Perk Police Department, recipient of the Wallace H. Bieler Distinguished Leadership Award.

            Dan Moyer is an industrial arts teacher at the Upper Perkiomen High School. Dan created the Upper Perk Xlab, a space where students can design, create, explore, fail and succeed on projects that they are passionate about. The 'X' is used to signify that anything is possible and that projects cover many interdisciplinary areas. Students in the lab are challenged every day to solve problems with creativity and teamwork. Moyer believes that teachers need to relate to the students and show interest in their education, while helping them find their passion and prepare them for anything in life.

            Dr. Pfeiffer has owned and operated his business in the Upper Perkiomen Valley for more than 30 years and has dedicated his life to educating and helping individuals lead a life of health and wellness. He believes that maintaining a positive and upbeat nature in light of life's challenges has allowed him to succeed as a business owner and to help people at his fullest potential. Thousands of patients have benefited from Dr. Pfeiffer's guidance and care. Through his public speaking events, and his Focus Health TM seminars and videos, Dr. Pfeiffer is able to reach more individuals and provide the information necessary to continue on the path toward true health and wellness.

            Corporal Lavin believes that leadership is about helping people achieve things they didn't think were possible. In his eyes, leaders have the ability to recognize a problem; the confidence and courage to make a stand; the charisma to lead a group; and the tenacity and inner fortitude not to quit until the problem is solved, especially in the face of adversity. Corporal Lavin, with the help of numerous other hardworking, local citizens formed Project Live, an organization created to provide social, educational, and preventative support to individuals and families struggling with Substance Use Disorder in the Upper Perkiomen Valley. Jamie currently serves as co-chair of Project Live.

            The UPVCC gave special thanks to the generous support of the event sponsors QNB Bank, Univest , Upper Perkiomen Valley YMCA, Walmart Supercenter, and Wells Fargo.
