One of the things the Cortland County Board of REALTORS® and its Affiliate membership takes pride in is supporting our community. Shuryl Menapace, President, has coordinated with The Salvation Army to involve our Realtors® in the annual Red Kettle Campaign. CCBR will also be raising money to benefit Loaves and Fishes at their Annual Holiday Gathering. In addition, REALTORS® and Affiliate Members donate and wrap new toys that will be distributed at the annual Loaves and Fishes Christmas party, and also further that giving spirit as they help stock the pantry by donating canned goods and basics food needs.
The Cortland County Board of REALTORS® next upcoming event is their annual awards luncheon for REALTOR® of the Year, President’s Award, Community Service and Community Hero Award, along with the Golden Circle Awards, in January 2020.
