The All People’s Congress ( APC ) New Jersey Chapter staged a huge Awards Night on Saturday January 7, 2017.
Though the relentless snow that fell throughout the day, with its accompanying slippery and slushy roads and bitter cold affected the attendance, there was however a cross-section of the community of New Jersey at the majestic Holiday Inn Hotel in Somerset , NJ to grace the occasion.
Led by the President of the Chapter, Mr. Alimamy Turay, APC-NJ members turned out in full colours to honor institutions, churches , mosques , organizations and individuals helping to uplift the community . According to Mr. Turay, the Chapter decided to hold the occasion to recognize people and organizations making a difference in the New Jersey community .
Mr. Turay stated that for the first time a political party in New Jersey decided to honor and give awards not just to its members but institutions and individuals from a wide spectrum of society.
The program was very interesting , with the cream of the society and representatives of organizations and churches present.
