Regional Council is looking to honour a hardworking volunteer in Niagara.
Nominations are now open for the T. Roy Adams Award, which is in memory of the former politician and his community service efforts throughout his life.
Chair Jim Bradley says they would like to honour someone who carries on his values.
“Even though we know the people who are nominated aren’t seeking recognition, we think it’s important to receive that recognition. I think it inspires others to be eligible for an award of this kind.”
Nominees can be sponsored by an organization or two individuals through a sponsor and a co-sponsor. However, you can not nominate a family member. Politicians and Regional staff are also not eligible.
Bradley says the nomination process includes some paperwork.
“A nomination has to include the following information; a completed nomination form, a detailed description about two pages in length that highlights the nominees lifetime community service and volunteerism and there should be an explanation of why the sponsors feel the nominee deserves to be recognized with the award.”
The deadline is March 31st and the forms can be picked up at the Clerks office on Sir Isaac Brock Way.
A committee will meet to select the recipient, who will be honoured at the Regional Council meeting in July.
