Mayor’s Recognition nominations sought
Do you know someone or a group who make Red Deer a great place to live, work and play?
Nominations for the Mayor’s Recognition Award are now open.
The City of Red Deer program recognizes, celebrates and awards the achievements and volunteer service by those who enhance the image of or make significant contribution to the community of Red Deer through their efforts and/or accomplishments.
The Mayor’s Recognition Awards honour recipients in athletics, fine and performing arts, citizenship, distinguished voluntary service, continuous voluntary service and the Mayor’s Special Award.
Mayor Tara Veer said it is the people who live here who make Red Deer such a great community.
She said the Mayor’s Recognition Awards are a way to acknowledge the personal achievements of citizens, their contributions to the community, and their efforts in enhancing the image of Red Deer through volunteerism, athletics and the arts.
“There are many deserving people out there and the city relies on the submission of nominations to bring the names of those people forward for consideration of an award,” said Veer.
