Awards for lo­cal ‘heroes’

The Glengarry News - - News -

Last year Stor­mont-Dun­das-South Glen­garry MP Guy Lau­zon pre­sented the SDSG Canada 150 Ser­vice Awards to 150 de­serv­ing con­stituents who had given back to their com­mu­nity.

Due to the “over­whelm­ingly pos­i­tive” re­sponse, the awards will be­come an an­nual pro­gram.

Al­though the 150th an­niver­sary of Con­fed­er­a­tion has passed, Mr. Lau­zon will con­tinue on with the tra­di­tion of rec­og­niz­ing out­stand­ing in­di­vid­u­als with the SDSG Ser­vice Awards.

The dead­line for nom­i­na­tions is Fri­day, June 15 at 5 p.m. Se­lec­tions will be made by June 22 and win­ners will be no­ti­fied by phone be­fore June 28.

Nom­i­na­tion pack­ages are avail­able on­line at www.guy­lau­zon.ca and were also be­ing dis­trib­uted to all res­i­dents of SDSG through a mailer which should have ar­rived last week.

Nom­i­na­tions are open to ed­u­ca­tors, artists, ath­letes, sci­en­tists, coaches, en­trepreneurs, emer­gency re­spon­ders, com­mu­nity vol­un­teers, ac­tiv­ity or­ga­niz­ers, and other “ev­ery­day heroes striv­ing to make their com­mu­nity bet­ter.” Nom­i­na­tions will be re­viewed by an in­de­pen­dent vol­un­teer panel who will rec­om­mend re­cip­i­ents to MP Lau­zon’s of­fice. To re­spect the pri­vacy of nom­i­nees, all nom­i­na­tions will be kept con­fi­den­tial. The awards can­not be given posthu­mously.
