The Cincinnati-Hamilton County Community Action Agency's annual dinner Friday focused on making things happen, and then honored one of its own who does.

More than 700 people gathered at the Hyatt Regency downtown Cincinnati for the Community Action Agency's (CAA) dinner meeting. The annual celebration is in its 34th year. Friday's theme was Involvement Makes for a Better Community -- CAA Makes Things Happen.

The Community Action Agency gave its staff a pat on the back for helping people make the transition from welfare to work. The agency has focused on strengthening families and helping low-income Cincinnatians improve the quality of their own lives, said Donna Marsh, agency spokeswoman.

Honored was David Blake, 49, an accountant with the agency. He received the Theodore M. Berry Award, named after the agency's first president, for his commitment and perseverance.

The honor goes to an employee whose work reflects the benchmark Mr. Berry set in his career, Ms. Marsh said.
