The awards are given for “Citizen, Business, Organization and Lifetime Achiever” who reside, work or volunteer in the Town of Clarence.

The criterion for selection of the individuals and business is an unselfish devotion to improving the quality of life in the Clarence community.

The chamber’s annual awards dinner will be held this year on March 1 at Samuel’s Grande Manor.

The chamber will present the 2018 Large Business of the Year award to Picone Construction Corp.

About 87 years ago, Charles Picone made a decision that would carry into several generations of the Picone family. After emigrating from Sicily, he worked as a stone mason and ultimately became masonry foreman for the construction of Buffalo City Hall. Upon completion in 1931, he founded a construction company now known as Picone Construction Corporation. Through the years, the Picone family continued the construction industry tradition with the addition of Anthony F. Picone in 1935,

Anthony J. in 1965, Judith in

1983, Anthony C. in 1989, and

Christopher in 1995.

Today, the company is currently owned and operated by third and fourth generation family members as they continue to make contributions to Clarence and Western New York through responsibility, integrity and pride of workmanship. Examples of the company’s commitment to the community can be seen in Clarence at the Bank of Akron, Harris Hill Fire Hall, Greatbatch, DiMar Manufacturing, Sisters of St. Joseph, Shops at Main and Transit, Uncle Bob's Storage, Petco and at the Picone Construction office at 10995 Main St. in Clarence Hollow.
