Oxford mayor announces citizen recognition awards
I have decided that it would again be appropriate to recognize citizens for their unheralded work in making Oxford a better place to live work and enjoy. The success of any community is built upon the efforts of individuals and organizations committed to working for the common good of all. The strength of a community does not rest in the power of government but is built upon the foundation of its citizens. Oxford has been blessed by the contributions of many hometown heroes. Since starting the awards in 2006 52 individuals and/or organizations have been recognized.
Citizen recognition awards will be given to honor individuals and organizations that exemplify a commitment to improving the quality of life in the Borough of Oxford. These awards will be given to those individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to the fabric and sense of community.
The recipients will have given unselfishly of themselves in service to others in the community, often unrecognized, to set a better example for all of us in the work that must be done to keep our community strong and make Oxford a better place to live.
To qualify for consideration individuals must be residents of the Borough, or work or volunteer in businesses or organizations within the Borough. Anyone can nominate an individual or organization for consideration. The deadline for submissions is April 15, 2014.
Nomination forms can be picked up at the Oxford Police Station, the Borough Hall or downloaded from my web site www.oxfordboro.org/mayor.
