In 2016, more than 30 Caledon volunteers were recognized and celebrated for making a difference in the community.
The 2016 Community Champion, the highest honour of the event, went to Betty Ward. A former teacher, she has contributed to the Caledon East community for decades through her church, the local historical society and many volunteer groups such as Meals on Wheels. Recognizing her as a Community Champion was just a small token of thanks for her countless hours of giving to others.
Nominations are now open to recognize outstanding Caledon citizens at the 2017 edition of Community Recognition Night.
“It’s wonderful to celebrate and recognize the outstanding achievements of the citizens of Caledon,” said Mayor Allan Thompson. “Council and I are thrilled to support and be part of this annual program.”
Eligibility criteria and nomination forms are available at caledon.ca/crn and are due by 4:30 p.m. Feb. 24.
Community Recognition Night is an event that honours Caledon residents who have contributed in an extraordinary way to their community. It recognizes individuals whose efforts have made significant impact toward the development and advancement of recreational sports, environmental leadership, arts and culture or community and social services.
This year’s celebration will be on Wednesday, April 26 at the Caledon Community Complex, starting at 7:00 p.m. and coincides with National Volunteer Week.
