Do you know someone who was outstanding in 2013, someone you think has the qualities to be named Lake Cowichan’s 2013 Citizen of the Year?

Do you know a tireless volunteer, worthy of the 2013 Nichole Stock Community Service Award?

If you do, nominate them for the Cowichan Lake District Chamber of Commerce’s annual awards.

The Citizen of the Year is given to someone who has spearheaded, organized or carried through a project that has benefited the community as a whole during 2013.

You could nominate a hero like the 2010 Citizen of the Year winner Blake Sprague who saved a fellow worker’s life after a workplace accident or a couple like 2011 winners Pete and Jo-Ann Pimlott for their ongoing community service.

The Nichole Stock Community Service Award winners are individuals who have exemplified volunteerism and who have not received any remuneration for the volunteer activity for which the award is being proposed.

Past winners include Val Sangster in 2011 and Robert Bell in 2012.

“ It’s up to the community to put forth nominations” said Visitor/Information Centre coordinator Katherine Worsley. “If you know someone, pick up and fill out the form.”

Forms are available at the Visitor/Business Centre, 125 South Shore Road. You can also download or fill out the form online at the Chamber’s website www.cowichanlake.ca

Your form can be as simple or as detailed as you want. Judges will call you if  more information is desired.

All entries must be submitted by 4 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 3, to the Cowichan Lake District Chamber of Commerce Visitor/Business Centre, emailed to  lcchamber@shaw.ca or sent by fax to 250-749-0187.
