Mayor Fiala works tirelessly to make Kent a great hometown and he’s announced a new Volunteer Awards Program to celebrate all those selfless volunteers that work alongside with him.
Kent has a lot of new stuff going on but one thing that never changes are the people that are willing to roll up their sleeves, step up, and offer their time and talent to tackle whatever community need comes their way.
Volunteers are a special breed and Kent has a long and proud tradition of folks that come together and rally around their home town. The Mayor says it’s time to recognize those people and give them a well deserved atta-boy and public pat-on-the-back.
For all those people, Mayor Fiala has announced his new Volunteer Recognition Awards that he’s timed to launch with National Volunteer Week, April 6-13th.
The Mayor has selected a team of judges, developed awards categories, and set the award criteria — but now he needs nominations. That’s where you come in.
If you know someone who selflessly gives their time or talents to others or to their community, now is the time to nominate them by sending in their name. There’s lots of different award categories and the Mayor is hoping there’s something for everyone — he just needs some names to consider.
Even if you can’t volunteer, here’s a great chance to do a civic duty and nominate someone whom you know has made a difference in this community.
