Installation Dinner

Each January, members of the Pacific Beach Town Council and other honored guests gather to install board members and officers for the new year. In 2021, because of COVID-19, we held the event online.

In addition to the new officers and board members taking their oaths, we presented the following awards:

Honorary Mayor. Pacific Beach’s honorary mayor for 2021 is Elvin Lai of Ocean Park Inn.

Pug Sandford Community Service Award. This year’s recipient is Eve Anderson, who has served our community in many roles over the years, including as a member of the Pacific Beach Planning Group.

Ellen Citrano Caring and Compassion Award. This is a new award created in honor of long-time PB resident and community volunteer Ellen Citrano, who is well-known for her kindness and hard work in helping those among us who are less fortunate. The 2021 recipient is Caryn Blanton of Shoreline Community Services, which provides food, clothing, and other assistance to the unsheltered people in Pacific Beach.
