Each year we recognize an outstanding citizen of Weston one who rises above the many tireless volunteers working to make our town a unique place to live.
It's that time again to make nominations for the 2011 Citizen of the Year.
To be chosen, a nominee should have demonstrated superb character, energy, integrity and accomplishment in Weston. Historically the person receiving this award has been involved in town programs, committees or organizations that contribute to the quality of life in our town.
Past Citizens of the Year include Fred Schneider, Don Gary, John Pokorny, Dawn Egan, Joe Abruzzi, Terri Gaberman, Betsy Peyreine and many other deserving Weston citizens. These people have given endless hours of their time to make Weston the special place it is today.
The Board of Police Commissioners will be discussing each nominee at the end of March and will vote at the April board meeting. If you wish to submit a nominee, please have his or her name, bio and contact information sent by March 15. Give a brief description of why they qualify for this award, including their accomplishments directly pertaining to Weston and what specific character elements make them stand out. The Citizen of the Year award will be presented at the town budget meeting in April.
You can submit your nominee to me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or fax it to 203-454-2401. Should you have any questions, contact Commissioner Hal Shupack at 203-247-4130.
