PITT MEADOWS, BC – It’s time to nominate those inspiring individuals, organizations and businesses that make a positive difference in our community. From subtle acts of kindness to major community efforts, all of these actions help enhance community wellbeing and deserve to be recognized.
“The Annual Community Service Awards program is our chance to show appreciation for the local heroes who have made us Pitt Meadows Proud™ by going above and beyond to help others,” says Mayor Bill Dingwall. “Throughout this year, we have seen our community step-up to support and help each other through amazing acts of kindness, compassion, courage and commitment.”
The Community Service Awards Program was created in 2019 to recognize and honour outstanding contributions and achievements of groups, organizations and individuals in six categories:
- Spirit of Pitt Meadows Award (recognizing Outstanding Resident of the Year)
- Against the Odds Achievement Award
- Community Service Award
- Community Service Youth Award (13 – 15 and 16 - 18)
- Business of the Year Award
- Good Neighbour Award
”Pitt Meadows has some incredibly dedicated volunteers, coaches, teachers and youth who are making a difference in their community,” says Chief Administrative Officer Mark Roberts. “It is important that we recognize the neighbours, businesses and community groups that make our community a better place to live.”
Nominations are open until October 18. More information, including nomination criteria and the online nomination form can be found at: pittmeadows.ca/awards.
The Community Service Awards Task Force, made up of representatives from the community, will review all nominations and select recipients that best reflect the category in which they’ve been nominated.
Award recipients will be announced and presented with their awards later this year as part of the annual Christmas in Pitt Meadows celebration on December 3.
