“It’s very important that we salute to the Black businesses and all the work they have done in our community,” Glenn said. “That’s why my organization, the Community Action Program, made a recommendation that we salute our Black businesses on Juneteenth.” The list of finalists includes five Black owned businesses in Lima, with Cecil’s Grill, Boilermaker Restaurant and Bar, Fresh N Faded Barber Shop, Black Lace Hair Salon, and Jones-Clark Funeral Home all being announced.
“We’re very happy with all these businesses and what kind of work they’ve been doing over the year, and the struggle they’ve been through by keeping their business going during the pandemic,” Glenn said. “So we are hoping to recognize them.”
Glenn also noted that all of the finalists on the list have been impacted by the restrictions put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving salons, barbershops, restaurants, and funeral homes to close down completely or operate on a very limited basis.
The winner of the award is expected to be announced on the Fourth of July.
