Deadline extended: Nominate someone for the 13th Annual Awards of Merit

Each year LAMP celebrates with the community people in the Lakeshore who are making a difference. The deadline to nominate someone in the Etobicoke -Lakeshore Area who deserves to be recognized is fast approaching, but has been extended one week to April 27, 2012 by 5pm. More details below.

LAMP Community Health Centre is looking for people, organizations, service clubs or businesses that have gone the extra mile to make a difference. The purpose of this distinction is to pay tribute to the unsung heroes who deserve our recognition and to celebrate their contributions to build a healthy Lakeshore. This recognition goes a long way to encouraging these community leaders to continue their efforts as community role models for others. It also inspires neighbours to help build a healthy community.

Some of the categories include: Safe Neighbourhoods to live and work, Strong Families & Good neighbours, Arts & Culture, Clean Environment, Safe Affordable Housing, Healthy Affordable Food, Education, Social service Supports, Parks, Recreation & Leisure, History and the Past.

The awards put the spotlight on people, groups, institutions and businesses who improve the quality of life for others. Acts of kindness form the bedrock of a strong, healthy community. Recipients must live, work, volunteer or own a business in the Lakeshore.

To nominate someone simply fill out a nomination form (attached below) and drop it off by Friday April 27, 2012 by 5 pm. Or you can simply write us and tell us why the person you are submitting should be recognized for an Award of Merit. We will need your contact information as well as the contact information of the person selected.
