No­mi­na­tions open for LaLu­mière Award

Le Reflet (The News) - - ACTUALITES|NEWS -

Pres­cott-Rus­sell Uni­ted Way is ta­king no­mi­na­tions now for this year’s La Lu­mière Com­mu­ni­ty Lea­der­ship Award.

Dead­line for no­mi­na­tions is Nov. 21. The award com­me­mo­rates Lu­cie Bru­net, a men­tor to ma­ny wo­men and or­ga­ni­za­tions in the Pres­cott-Rus­sell re­gion. As a fe­mi­nist and hu­ma­nist, she be­lie­ved in the im­por­tance of being bold, in pro­tes­ting against in­jus­tice wi­thout gi­ving up, in gi­ving her time to the com­mu­ni­ty, and in using a col­la­bo­ra­tive ap­proach to find so­lu­tions and re­solve conflicts.

De­tails about both Bru­net and the award are avai­lable at www.uni­ted­way­pr.ca/LaLu­miè­reA­ward. The goal of the award pro­gram is to en­cou­rage others to fol­low Bru­net’s example of lea­der­ship and vo­lun­teer ser­vice.

The inau­gu­ral re­ci­pient of the 2016 award was Na­tha­lie La­mou­reux, a de­di­ca­ted and en­ga­ged vo­lun­teer. More de­tails on her contri­bu­tions to the com­mu­ni­ty are at www.uni­ted­way-pr.ca/2016awar­dre­ci­pient.

Eli­gible can­di­dates for the award must be re­si­dents of Pres­cott-Rus­sell, show outs­tan­ding com­mu­ni­ty in­vol­ve­ment through vo­lun­teer work, de­mons­trate they are able to work well with others for the good of others, and show lea­der­ship and ini­tia­tive in so­lu­tions for com­mu­ni­ty needs. Staff and board mem­bers of Cen­traide-Uni­ted Way Pres­cott-Rus­sell (CUWPR) and the se­lec­tion com­mit­tee are not eli­gible for no­mi­na­tion.

The no­mi­na­tion form is avai­lable at the CUWPR web­site and may be sent in by mail to Cen­traide-Uni­ted Way Pres­cott-Rus­sell, 134 Main Street East, Of­fice 103, Haw­kes­bu­ry, ON, K6A 1A3, or email to in­fo@cen­trai­de­pres­cot­trus­sell.ca be­fore the Nov. 21 dead­line.
