Sandwich Lions Club seeking Citizenship Award nominees

Presentation is set for club's February meeting

The Sandwich Lions Club will be honoring a person or couple with its second annual Citizenship Award at the regular Lions Club meeting in February.

Criteria for the award includes volunteer service in Sandwich and the surrounding area, character and citizenship, civic leadership, and accomplishments toward the betterment of the Sandwich community.

This can be an improvement or program of significant value to the community. The improvement must be made as a result of personal commitment and not substantially as the result of the person’s primary employment or public responsibilities.

A Lions Club committee will evaluate the nominations, and the recipient will be able to name a charity of their choice, which will be given $150 in their honor. The award recipient will also be recognized at the annual Chamber of Commerce meeting in March.

Deadline for nominations is Jan. 18. Please submit your nomination by mail to Sandwich Lions Club Citizenship Award, P.O. Box 32, Sandwich, IL 50438, or by email to Lion Tom Martin at loveourcollie@yahoo.com.

A submission can be in the form of a letter or a nominating form. Forms can be requested from the same addresses.

Anyone is eligible, with the exception of members of the Sandwich Lions Club’s Board of Directors.
