By now, everyone who’s anyone knows that our own Cynthia Elliot won the ‘Neighborhood Dynamo” award at the Oakland Indies this year. One of her fabulous prizes was a gorgeous red clutch purse (actually a gift bag, but we’re creative reusers like that). Being the dynamo that she is, always thinking about how to engage the community, Cynthia has started the Red Clutch Awards. Every month, the award (and said purse) will be gifted to a community member that does something above and beyond the call. The first winner was announced in June as none other than Bill Silviera.
