Posted on Monday September 28, 2020

PEMBROKE ON:  The annual County of Renfrew Warden’s Community Service Awards are a meaningful way to recognize and thank an Individual, a Not-for-profit business, and For-profit Business.

Individuals in our community step up in many ways to improve and strengthen the quality of life we enjoy here in the Ottawa Valley.  From participating in and organizing community initiatives, devoting their time and energy to politics, supporting social responsibility, mentoring or inspiring children and youth, and celebrating our culture and heritage.  Nominate an outstanding individual from your community.

For-profit Businesses, are significant contributors to community well-being.  Many for-profit-businesses sponsor sports teams and youth groups, support charities, or contribute to the arts and culture. This is your opportunity to have these valuable corporate citizens recognized and acknowledged for their good deeds.  You can nominate a local for-profit business that makes a difference in the county.

Not-for-profit Business organizations in Renfrew County contribute to and assist community members facing a wide range of  challenges, and often these organizations offer services and support to those most in need.  Do you know a not-for-profit that is a community champion?  Nominate them for this year’s award.

County of Renfrew Warden Debbie Robinson shared this message, “These annual awards are a formal recognition of the outstanding efforts made by Individuals and organizations for their active roles in promoting social responsibility and positivity in our community.  I would encourage citizens to nominate individuals and organizations that they feel really make a difference in making life in Renfrew County better for all.   I look forward to celebrating the excellence of these organizations and individuals for their contributions and efforts in making such selfless contributions.”

Each year, a Selection Review Committee comprised of the County of Renfrew Warden, Chief Administrative Officer, and one member of County Council select the award recipients.  Nominees are considered in each of the three categories: Individual Person, Not-for-profit Business, and For-profit Business.  All nominees are considered on the basis of criteria as to how they contribute to the County of Renfrew’s Quality of life.
