Every year during our Canada Day celebrations I have the great privilege of presenting awards to Kingstonians who have gone above and beyond in their contributions to our community. The City’s Civic Awards program, now in its 18th year, honour exemplary individuals who have made a difference in our community through volunteerism.
I am asking for your help Kingston! Some of the greatest volunteers and contributors in our city work behind the scenes and out of the spotlight. You may know or benefit from the work that they do, but we don’t, unless you take a few moments to nominate them. So please, take just a few minutes to fill out the short nomination form, linked below. Together we can recognize outstanding citizens of all ages making a difference each and every day!
