The Vienna Town/Business Liaison Committee has recognized Caffe Amouri, 107 Church St. N.E., and its owner, Michael Amouri, with the 2013 Carole Wolfand Business Community Service Award during the Vienna Volunteer Recognition Reception on Tuesday, April 9.

The award, which is open to any business within the town limits, recognizes businesses and business owners for outstanding contributions to the community life and spirit of Vienna.

In business since 2010, Michael Amouri has actively supported many charitable organizations through various outreach efforts and most notably began “Vienna Idol,” which spotlights local talent while raising money to support scholarships for Vienna’s Youth. In addition, he holds various free educational events and showcases local talent in the café. With the tag line of “where coffee meets community,” Mr. Amouri looks forward to his continued involvement in the Vienna community.

The Town Business Liaison Committee also recognized Tim Fricker with Bikes@Vienna, 128-A Church St. N.W., and Cameron Medwedeff of Michael’s Lawn Service as nominees for this year’s Carole Wolfand Business Community Service Award. Fricker was recognized for his contributions to the Committee For Helping Others, specifically with their Christmas program in collecting, repairing and distributing donated bikes at no charge. Medwedeff was recognized for his quality business practices.
