22News and Bob Charland honored by Chicopee Chamber of Commerce

Hampden County

A special salute Wednesday for 22News, recognized by the Chicopee Chamber of Commerce on our 65th year on the air in western Massachusetts.

“Their news and weather apps and social media sites keep western Massachusetts news consumers informed and safe, 24/7, 365,” said Chicopee Mayor Richard Kos.

Also receiving recognition for his tireless efforts to make sure deserving children have a bicycle to ride, and local and state police have safety bags to hand out to the homeless, Bob “The Bike Man” Charland.

The Chamber also recognized 18-year-old Daishany Torres as the Chicopee Boys and Girls Club “Youth of the Year.”
