The Rotary Club of Invermere is calling for nominations for Citizen of the Year for 2011. The award was created by the club and has been given out since 1981 to recognize outstanding members of our community who provide broad based community service.
“Each year the Rotary Club reviews all nominations and it is always a difficult process to go through the numerous worthy individuals in the community who make it an incredible place to live. The large number of high calibre individuals nominated each year makes this a very meaningful award to win. We urge people to nominate their well-deserving friends, neighbours, family and friends so that people who work hard serving our community have an opportunity to be recognized for their efforts,” said Rotary member Kerri-Anne Thomas.
Anyone interested in nominating a resident for the award should send a signed letter which should include the nominated person’s name and background and details of their community service and must be signed by the nominator(s). The letters should be sent to the Rotary Club of Invermere, Box 877, Invermere, BC V0A 1K0 and must be received by February 28, 2011 for consideration.
Although all nomination letters must be signed, nominations and nominators will remain confidential. Nominated individuals can live anywhere between Spillimacheen and Canal Flats.
The service that the individual is nominated for should be community service done as an individual (ie. not through their business) and should not be related to any political or religious groups.
The club looks for the broadest possible community service in assessing the nominees.
