Avon Lake Citizen and Project of the Year Nominations Due March 17
Nominations for the Citizen of the Year and Project of the Year Awards for 2010 are due on March 17.
The Avon Lake Community Council is spearheading the project, first announced in January. The Community Council, formed in 2010, introduced the Citizen of the Year and Project of the Year Awards to acknowledge an Avon Lake volunteers’ service to the community.
The Citizen of the Year must be an Avon Lake resident.
“We’re looking for someone who has volunteered over the years, helping out other people,” councilman Martin O’Donnell, the chairman of the Community Council said earlier this year.
The Project of the Year can be any service, school, city or citizen project completed in 2010 that made a significant contribution to the community.
The awards’ recipients will be acknowledged at the May 12 Avon Lake Kiwanis Club dinner.
Last year, the Project of the Year was awarded to the Avon Lake Garden Club.
Longtime residents Kay Usher and Betty Kinsner were selected as Citizens of the Year, due to their voluntary work in the community.
Nomination forms can be found at http://www.avonlake.org, at City Hall (first floor), the Avon Lake Public Library, and through all organizations belonging to the Avon Lake Community Council. Nominations should be sent to O’Donnell at 150 Avon Belden Road, Avon Lake, Ohio 44012, or sent via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any questions or requests for nomination forms should be directed to O’Donnell at 933-7310.
