This year we are very pleased to be awarding Jim Conroy our coveted "Bees-knees Biz-niss Buzz Award" for his outstanding commitment to community and generosity to Project GRACE. Many know Jim well: and although he keeps a low profile, he has been making a difference to our community for decades. Jim and his team at Conroy’s Oil have saved the day for us countless times, heading forth into the cold, no matter the weather, to help us keep our neighbors warm. As a token of our profound regard and gratitude, we offer Jim Conroy, a great friend of Project GRACE, our coveted "Bees-knees Biz-niss Buzz Award".
