Next citizen of year wanted

Do you know a pillar of the community who should be recognized for their long-standing volunteer contributions to the neighbourhood?

Then consider nominating them as this year’s Beach Citizen of the Year. The annual award is presented by Community Centre 55, the Beaches Lions Club, and Beach Metro News, and was founded in 2001.

The award recognizes selfless civic activity: anyone who regularly gives of their time for the benefit of the community. Past winners include youth sports organizers, community theatre boosters, historic preservationists, Guides leaders, and community activists of all stripes.

If you know someone whose good deeds should be recognized, consider nominating them as this year’s citizen. Past nominees are welcome to be re-submitted. Forms can be picked up at Community Centre 55, 97 Main St., or downloaded from

Include as much information as possible about nominees. The winner will be announced in these pages, and honoured in September with a ceremony and permanent stone at the Millennium Garden, at the corner of Coxwell and Eastern Avenues.
