One of the awards the community prides itself in giving every year is the “Commercial Beautification Award”. This is “for exterior restoration, renovation of commercial, industrial and public properties”. Consideration is given to the site’s impact on the general area.
Fire and Police Community Appreciation Dinner
The Piqua Area Chamber of Commerce coordinates the Annual Fire & Police Community Appreciation Dinner. The Piqua Community sponsors a dinner for the fire and police departments in appreciation of their dedicated service to the Piqua Community. They are all invited for an evening of acknowledgement for their efforts in keeping our community safe. We are fortunate, in this community, to have a police and a fire department which invoke such feelings of pride. Every day they risk their lives to protect the citizens of Piqua and we are grateful.
