NARRAGANSETT- During its annual dinner on Tuesday at Spain Restaurant, The Narragansett Chamber of Commerce presented the James Kelso Award to local business Olympic Physical Therapy.
The James Kelso Award is a community service award that is named for James M. Kelso, a state representative, community leader and managing partner of the Coast Guard restaurant who died in 1999.
The award originated in 1999 and recognizes a local resident or organization that has provided unparalleled volunteer service and has shown an outstanding commitment to both the community and its residents.
Olympic Physical Therapy and Foot Orthotics was founded in May 2000 and is focused on providing outpatient physical therapy and sports medicine rehabilitation to the residents of Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts.
According to OPT Wakefield Clinic Director Guerrino Boni, the goal of the business is consistently assessing the needs of the community while striving to provide the highest level of care and customer service.
“We are physical therapy so our main concern is the community and we focus on giving back so to receive a community service award that is just one of the greatest recognitions we could receive,” said Boni. “We never expected this award, and we are greatly honored to have even been nominated by some of the athletic directors and people in the community that we have worked with.”
