Here are some of the faces that make Downtown Campbell more than just a small district with restaurants and some shops. Every month, a different business in Downtown Campbell hosts this gathering of business owners, nonprofit representatives, and City of Campbell officials to go over upcoming events, share news, and discuss ways to support each other and make Downtown Campbell a better place. The meeting this month was at the newly opened Water Tower Kitchen.

These people are the Downtown Campbell Business Association (DCBA) and they're the community minded volunteers who are behind the scenes of much of what happens in Downtown Campbell. It's really amazing that Downtown Campbell is as well composed as it is because so much of it is being done by volunteers in their "spare time". This isn't typical of a lot of the Main Street districts that you know. Places like Downtown Campbell usually have at least one full time staff person to run the show.

What we lack in resources, we make up for in culture. It's a "culture of doing stuff" and it includes our fans and local residents who reward us for doing what we do by showing up and bringing friends. That in turn encourages businesses who want to be a part of this culture to open up shop in Downtown Campbell and help us keep this thing going.

Every year, as part of the Celebrate Campbell Awards Dinner event, we get to choose a person important to Downtown Campbell to honor. This year, we're pleased to name a person who's a true team player as the Downtown Campbell Business Association's (DCBA) person of the year for 2019. You might not know him, but if you're around in Downtown Campbell often, you've probably seen him because he lives downtown and shows up to just about everything to be there in support. Nicholas Welzenbach is the name that goes with this face you probably already recognize. He's the funeral director and a managing partner of Darling Fischer Memorial Chapel in Campbell. In addition to being a very active member of the DCBA, he's also a board member and President-Elect of the Campbell Chamber of Commerce.

Nicholas' selfless attitude perfectly embodies one of the core values of the Downtown Campbell Business Association, which is that doing things for the community is not just the right thing to do, but also good for businesses in the long run. For things that improve the quality of life in Campbell, he's never hesitated to volunteer himself and his business without considering if there's anything to gain from it. He also encourages fellow business owners to think of the community first and trust that any sacrifices they have to make is goodwill paid forward that will come back to them in the end.

Please join us in honoring Nicholas and other stand out members of the Campbell community at the Campbell Chamber's 51st Annual Celebrate Campbell Awards Dinner.
