Nomination period open for Trail-Warfield Citizen of the Year Award

Knights of Columbus are looking for nominations for Trail-Warfield Citizen of the Year.

Maybe there is a friend, neighbour or coworker who has been a tireless volunteer for the good of the community?

If so, then the Knights of Columbus want to hear about it for its Trail-Warfield Citizen of the Year Award.

Each year, since 1957, the award has been given to individuals or organizations that have contributed to the community.

The committee looks at those with an exceptional record of community service.

“We are looking for an all-around volunteer,” said committee member, Brian Volpatti.

“Most don’t just do one thing, they volunteer at a variety of different places.”

The annual ceremony is slated for May 7, the first special activity leading into the 50th annual Silver City Days celebration.

Any resident of Trail or Warfield, or any organization serving these communities; can be nominated, explained Volpatti.

“You don’t have to ask the person,” he said. “Once they are selected, we will approach him or her.”

Nomination forms can be picked up at the City of Trail office; the Village of Warfield; the Trail and District Public Library; or the Trail and Warfield branches of Kootenay Savings Credit  Union. Nominations are being accepted until April 12.

Last year, Margaret Taylor was honoured with the Trail-Warfield Citizen of the Year Award.
