Nominations sought for Vernon’s Good Citizen award

JCI Vernon presents the annual award

Every year, JCI Vernon recognizes an outstanding member of the community.

Nominations are now open as JCI Vernon searches for Vernon’s 2018 Good Citizen of the Year.

“This award is handed out to celebrate the accomplishments and successes of an individual who has gone above and beyond to make a difference,” said Lindsey Keller, JCI Vernon communications director.

The winner is awarded in a surprise ceremony and then recognized by the community during the Vernon Winter Carnival and will be awarded with $500 to donate to the charity of their choice by JCI Vernon’s corporate sponsor Kidston and Company LLP.

Cindy Masters, development officer for the Kindale Developmental Association, was named the 2017 Good Citizen of the Year. For the 2016 award Marie Morris, a longtime volunteer with several different organizations, received the honour.

“If you know a person who deserves recognition in our community, please nominate them for JCI Vernon’s 2018 Good Citizen Award,” Keller said.

Award nominations are accepted until Jan. 11. The nomination form is available online. For more information, email jcivernongoodcitizen@gmail.com.
