Rotary Club looks for 2012 Citizen

Rotary Club calls for nominations for the 2012 Citizens of the Year

Once again the local Rotary Club is seeking nominations for Citizens of the Year. This event started in 2005 and each year a citizen from Ashcroft and a citizen from Cache Creek have been recognized for their service to the community.

The nominations are open to individuals residing in the area and nominations can be submitted to Ashcroft/Cache Creek Rotary, PO Box 11, Ashcroft, BC  V0K 1A0 or via email to michelle@ashcroftbc.ca no later than Dec. 16.

When submitting your nomination, please ensure that you provide the name and contact information for the nominee but also include a brief summary of the work that they have done. These do not have to be people who have lived in the area for a long time – just people, young and old, who make our communities better places to live.

We urge all of you to look around and take this opportunity to recognize someone who is always there helping out. These are those folks who are one of the first to arrive and the last to leave community functions – staying until the last chairs are put away and the floors are swept, helping people with chores around their homes, and donating their time to various organizations.

In the past six years we have received excellent nominations and recognized 12 individuals who truly live the motto of Rotary – “Service Above Self”.  Please help us find two more for the 2011 Citizens of the Year.

Chair – Citizen of the Year Committee, Ashcroft/Cache Creek Rotary
