The Norfolk Neighborhood Expo will also feature the 3rd Annual Community U.P.L.I.F.T. (Unity, Public Service, Leadership, Innovation, Friendship & Teamwork) Awards which serves to recognize those who have performed an act of service that benefitted the community and the residents of Norfolk in 2022. This may include individuals, civic leagues or community organizations, businesses, non-profits, or religious organizations – any individual or group that made a meaningful impact in the community to help others.
