Thenom­i­na­tion pe­riod of Au­gust 28, 2015 is draw­ing near for two com­mu­nity con­tri­bu­tion awards from Town­ship­pers’ As­so­ci­a­tion. The as­so­ci­a­tion is wel­com­ing nom­i­na­tions for the Out­stand­ing Town­ship­pers and Young Town­ships Leader Award, two awards that rec­og­nize ex­cep­tional con­tri­bu­tions of in­di­vid­u­als, groups and youth who have gone above and be­yond in con­tribut­ing to the vi­tal­ity of the English-speak­ing com­mu­nity of the Eastern Town­ships. The Out­stand­ing Town­ship­pers rec­og­nizes in­di­vid­u­als, cou­ples and groups, from all walks of life, who have made con­sid­er­able con­tri­bu­tions — be­yond the usual ex­pec­ta­tions of their job or pro­fes­sion, through vol­un­teerism, so­cial ac­tivism, men­tor­ing, or phi­lan­thropy — to the life of the Eastern Town­ships English-speak­ing com­mu­nity. Can­di­dates for the award can be of any age as long as they have demon­strated their com­mit­ment in any field to help make their com­mu­nity a bet­ter place to live, work and raise a fam­ily. Nom­i­na­tions forms can be down­loaded from the Com­mu­nity sec­tion of Town­ship­pers.org and are avail­able at Town­ship­pers’ As­so­ci­a­tion’s of­fices. Geared to­wards youth age 15 to 35, the Young Town­ships Leader Award (YTLA) specif­i­cally high­lights youth achieve­ments, dy­namism and in­volve­ment by cel­e­brat­ing young peo­ple who serve as role mod­els to other youth as well as to adults. Can­di­dates must have car­ried out ac­tions or ini­tia­tives de­mon­strat­ing lead- er­ship within the Eastern Town­ships English-speak­ing com­mu­nity in the past two years. One win­ner will be cho­sen to re­ceive a beau­ti­fully framed cer­tifi­cate, as well as a cash prize. Nom­i­na­tion forms can be down­loaded from the Youth sec­tion at Town­ship­pers.org and are avail­able at Town­ship­pers’ As­so­ci­a­tion’s of­fices. Re­cip­i­ents of both awards will be rec­og­nized fol­low­ing the Town­ship­pers’ Day open­ing cer­e­monies on Satur­day, Septem­ber 12, 2015, at the Brome fair­grounds, 345 Stage­coach Road.
