Nominations open for Township volunteer awards

TOL to honour residents who improve life for others and make a difference in the community

Do you know an individual, youth or a couple who improves life for others and makes a difference in the community?

If so, the Township of Langley would like to know about them. The municipality is now accepting nominations for the 2018 volunteer awards until Friday, Feb. 9, 2018.

Nominees will be recognized at the Township’s annual Volunteer Appreciation and Awards Evening in April.

Nominations are currently being accepted for:

  • 2017 Eric Flowerdew Volunteer Award — The Eric Flowerdew Volunteer Award recognizes a volunteer who promotes an active living lifestyle that enhances residents’ quality of life through creative, cultural, physical, or social pursuits, promotes traditional and non-traditional recreation activities, and enhances Langley’s community spirit.
  • 2017 John and Muriel Arnason Award — The John and Muriel Arnason Award is presented to a volunteer couple or pair of individuals who advocate culture, learning, and literacy, foster partnerships and cooperative efforts, and create the potential for long-term benefits to the Langley community.
  • 2017-2018 Pete Swensson Outstanding Community Youth Award — The Pete Swensson Outstanding Community Youth Award is awarded annually to a Langley student in grade 11 or 12, who is nominated by his or her school, to recognize athletic achievements, scholastic efforts, community involvement, and personal qualities. If you know an outstanding youth who should be considered for nomination, contact the school’s principal.

A $750 monetary award will be presented to a recognized charity or society chosen by the winners of the Eric Flowerdew Volunteer Award and the John and Muriel Arnason Award. The winner of the Pete Swensson Award will receive a $750 scholarship.
