Township Launches Call for Nominations for Volunteer Awards

Volunteers support our community and make it a better place to live. Through the 2021 Volunteer Awards, the Township of Langley recognizes outstanding volunteers who have made a positive difference in our community.

Nomination packages are now available, and members of the public are encouraged to nominate volunteers that
deserve to be in the spotlight. Examples may include volunteering for a local agency or school, coaching kids in
sports, helping to protect the environment, or assisting those in need.

“Volunteers greatly contribute to the well-being of our community and they deserve to be acknowledged for their
selflessness and dedication for making the Township a better place to live,” says Township of Langley Mayor Jack
Froese.

Volunteer Award Categories:

  • Eric Flowerdew Volunteer Award recognizes an individual who enhances Langley’s quality of life.
  • Pete Swensson Outstanding Community Youth Award will be presented to a student with exemplary athletic and academic achievements, community involvement, and personal qualities.
  • John and Muriel Arnason Award will go to a pair of individuals who volunteer together to make Langley a better place.

This year, the awards will be presented at the Township of Langley’s annual Volunteer Appreciation and Awards
Evening in April, where an exceptional youth, individual, and couple will be recognized and awarded for their
volunteer contributions.

Nomination forms and award criteria are available at www.tol.ca/awards, and nominations must be received by
Monday, February 28. Nominations of Grade 11 or 12 students for the Pete Swensson Outstanding Community
Youth Award must be submitted by their schools.

Recipients will receive $750 to be presented to a recognized charity or society of their choice, or to go towards their education.
