Nominate someone now for Ladysmith Citizen of the Year

Do you know somebody who has done a lot for the community over the years and deserves to be called Ladysmith’s 2014 Citizen of the Year?

If so, the Ladysmith Celebrations Society is hoping to hear from you in the next couple of weeks.

The Ladysmith Celebrations Society is asking for your nominations for the 2014 Citizen of the Year Award, which will be presented during Ladysmith Days in early August.

The Citizen of the Year Award is presented annually for outstanding community service over a period of time.

The service must be voluntary and does not include service where there has been a connection to normal employment.

Nominations are open to all residents of Ladysmith, but they must conform to the guidelines put forth by the Ladysmith Celebrations Society.

The nomination deadline is Friday, July 18.

The nominations that are received will be judged by a panel of Ladysmith residents.

Please mail your nominations to Citizen of the Year, c/o  1125B Walkem Rd., Ladysmith B.C., V9G 1P6 or e-mail them to event@ladysmithdays.com.

The winner will be announced Saturday, Aug. 2 at 9:50 a.m. during the Rotary Pancake Breakfast at the Ladysmith & District Credit Union parking lot during Ladysmith Days.
