GLOUCESTER UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST CHURCH
CALL FOR NOMINATIONS for the 2012 COMMUNITY RECOGNITION AWARDS
Nominations are open for the church’s awards honoring those whose volunteer work makes Gloucester a better place. Who do you know who deserves this recognition? The Gloucester Unitarian Universalist Church is inviting nominations from the public for its 2012 Community Recognition Awards. The church annually seeks to recognize up to 10 individuals for contributions they voluntarily make to Gloucester, both large and small – people who do what they do without thought of any remuneration or recognition.
The men and women who receive these honors will come from all walks of life. Some are known for simple deeds they do for their neighbors. Others are honored for giving generously to the entire community. All will be people who have worked persistently and quietly to make a mark on Gloucester. They will be chosen because their actions embody the best of the spirit that guides Unitarian Universalism – open-hearted giving to others, solely for what those gifts mean, for no pay, and often with little or no public notice. From young to old, there are no age limits
Nominations are due no later than Friday, April 13. They must be in writing and include the name and address of the nominee, why this person should be honored, and the name and contact information of the person making the nomination. Nominations may be sent to the Gloucester Unitarian Universalist Church, 10 Church St., Gloucester MA 01930, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Final choices will be made by the church’s Social Justice Committee. The awards will be made at a public event at the church on Sunday, May 20.
