The Citizen of the Year Award is presented to that individual who best represents the qualities each of us admire and respect among our friends, neighbors and associates.
It’s not given so much for achievement, as it is for helping others achieve.
It’s not given for outstanding single effort, as much as for long-term, continuing commitment to the community.
It’s not given for position, public or private, as it is for “being there” when there is service called for.
It’s not given so much for being a member, or for paying dues, or for financial contribution, as it is for being the one everybody wants on the Committee when there’s a job to be done.
It’s for the one who says, “Sure – I’ll help – what do we need to do?” And then does it.
An independent panel from a neighboring Chamber of Commerce will review the submitted nominees and select a winner.
The Citizen of the Year is awarded at the annual awards banquet held in January.
Nominate someone today!
