Lon & Peggy Normandin have been married over fifty years and have six children Caren, Lisa, Mark, Diane, Paul and David. Lon is a founder and board member of Heritage Bank of Commerce. The Normandin family has owned and operated the Normandin Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Fiat dealership for five generations.

The Normandin’s have tirelessly helped numerous boards and charitable organizations focusing on education, Catholic charities and philanthropy, Crohn’s & Colitis campaigns, hunger, education, and child advocacy. We celebrate the Normandin family and their dedication to building a stronger community for families today and all future generations.

The Silicon Valley Monterey Bay Council’s annual Distinguished Citizen Dinner Gala raises awareness for Scouting as well as the necessary funds to serve more than 13,500 youth in our community with lessons in character development, leadership and physical fitness.
