Citizen of the Year nominations are open

This is residents’ opportunity to nominate a person of their choice who should be honored with the 2019 Moorestown Citizen of the Year Award.

For more than 60 years, the “Citizen of the Year Award” recognizes a Moorestown resident, who, through varied voluntary community service activities, has significantly contributed to the quality of life of both our community and its citizens.

This is residents’ opportunity to nominate a person of their choice who should be honored with the 2019 Moorestown Citizen of the Year Award.

Please contact john@omearas.net for a nomination form and submit your nomination in either hard copy to: Moorestown Community House (attn. Service Club Council), 16E Main Street, Moorestown, NJ 08057 or in email / electronic format to: info@thecommunityhouse.org

All nominations must be submitted to the Service Club Council by Dec. 1. The council will announce their selection in January and there will be a Citizen of the Year celebration in the Moorestown Community House on Wednesday, Feb. 6.

Factors to be considered for nomination are:

· Although service activities are not geographically limited to Moorestown, nominee must be or have been a citizen of the Moorestown township.

· Community service through individual volunteer effort and/or participation in group activities, unrelated to nominee’s employment.
