The Community Law Center likes its clients so much that it invited them all to a Client Celebration at the Baltimore Urban League building and gave a good number of them awards.
The center, a private organization of five staff lawyers and about 40 volunteer lawyers, provides free legal representation to Baltimore City community associations. Its executive director is Anne Blumenberg.
Clients such as the Harlem Park Revitalization Corp., the Franklin Square Community Association, the Druid Heights Community Development Corp. and the Reservoir Hill Improvement Council received W. Warren Hamel Community Action Awards in a ceremony witnessed by about 200 people. The awards are named for the retiring chairman of the law center's board.
Awards to individuals included Super Visionary (state Sen. Perry Sfikas), Best Community Personalities (Oscar Cobbs, Marge Gandee and Earl Bazemore) and Best Resident Participation (Chris Brown and Ray Blankenheim).
