Community Awards Nominations Due September 30
We are currently seeking nominations for the 2022 Community Awards Program. This year’s program is unique as we not only get to celebrate and highlight the outstanding contributions made by citizens, businesses, and organizations helping to make our community a great place to live, work and play, but we are also celebrating the Township’s 60th Anniversary of becoming a Charter Township.
The purpose of this program is to shine a light on the positive influences that your friends, neighbors, and family members are making throughout our community, and we need your help to identify these unsung heroes.
Be sure to check out all four categories of nominations. The deadline for nominations is Friday, September 30, 2022, by 3:00 p.m. Nominations can be submitted through the online entry form(s) found at deltami.gov/communityawards on the left-hand side of the screen (hard copies of forms are available upon request.)
