North Grenville’s Council is seeking nominations for outstanding individuals and groups who volunteer in service to our citizens and community to be honoured with a Civic Award. As there was no award ceremony in 2019, nominations will be accepted for both 2019 and 2020.
“The Civic Awards program is an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the important contributions and accomplishments of North Grenville’s residents, businesses and organiza- tions make each year for our community,” said Mayor Nancy Peckford.
“While COVID-19 has changed how community groups and individuals have contributed to our community, it is crucial that we step back and recognize those that have gone above and beyond in 2019-2020.”
The Civic Awards are presented annually to one volunteer in each of the designated age groups, consisting of Youth (25 years and younger), Adult (26 to 55 years) and Senior (56 years and older), in addition to one group award, in the each of the following categories:
- Arts & Culture
- Exemplary Work in the Community • Environment
- Health & Wellness
- Recreation, Sport & Leisure
Nomination packages are available on our website (www.northgrenville.ca), and hard copies are available at the Municipal Centre and at the Public Libraries (1 Water St. in Kemptville and 1 Grenville St. in Burritt’s Rapids). The deadline to submit nominations is 5:00 p.m. on Monday, November 30.
The Mayor and Council of the Municipality of North Grenville established the Civic Awards Program to recognize and honour the selfless efforts and dedication of outstanding individuals and groups who volunteer in service to our citizens and community.
Since the Program began in 2009, more than 40 individuals and 6 groups have been recognized for their efforts.
