Saline Area Chamber of Commerce looking for outstanding citizen nominations for three awards
Nominations are under way for the “Saline Salutes” awards that recognize outstanding area residents, and the deadline is quickly nearing.
Each year, the chamber seeks nominations for people with an outstanding record of achievement in the area.
Among the awards given are Citizen of the Year, Lifetime Achievement and the George Anderson Vision Award. In addition, there is a Youth of the Year Award presented by the Saline Youth Council.
The Citizen of the Year Award recognizes an individual who has contributed a significant amount of time during the past year to one or more worthy causes.
The Lifetime Achievement Award is given to someone who has dedicated many years of service achievable over a lifetime of dedication.
The George A. Anderson Vision Award, named after a former Saline mayor, is awarded to someone who serves, or has serviced, in a volunteer or advisory capacity with an area government-related entity.
Nominations are due by Feb. 29, and forms can be found on the chamber's website.
Tickets are also on sale for the April 13 event honoring the winners at the Ellen A. Ewing Performing Arts Center at Saline High School. The evening includes entertainment, a strolling buffet by high school students of the South and West Washtenaw consortium and a short awards program.
Cost for the event is $20 per person for reservations made by April 8 and $30 per person after that date.
Both nomination forms and reservations can be obtained on the chamber’s website or by calling 734-429-4494.
