Downtown residents and businesspeople gathered in the De La Ronde Ballroom on Nov. 12 for fellowship and presentation of three Good Neighbor Awards by Christ in the City, a nondenominational center on Third Street.

Winners include Adams and Reese, Attorneys at Law; Prescriptions to Geaux, owned and managed by T.J. Woodard; and Margaret Carriere, employed at various downtown businesses for several decades and currently working for Bob Dean Properties.

Dr. Nick Abraham closed the gathering by talking about the importance and meaning of neighborliness and community.
