Nominees sought for Clallam County Community Service Awards

We are looking for people who make a difference in Clallam County — individuals who have made our communities a better place. Soroptimist International of Port Angeles-Noon Club and Peninsula Daily News invite nominations for the 2008 Clallam County Community Service Awards.

The awards were created to recognize the dedication, sacrifice and accomplishments of local people who do extraordinary things for their neighbors, their community or the environment.

This is the 28th year for this annual awards program, begun by the PDN and now co-sponsored by the Soroptimist noon club.

Past winners of Community Service Awards have organized community efforts to clean up waterways, served as literacy tutors, raised money for disabled people, protected animals, organized food programs for the hungry and aided crime victims and their families.

Others have created a playground for special needs children, started a youth sailing class, founded a cancer survivor support group, volunteered in health and education programs on local Indian reservations and were instrumental in the creation of teen activity centers.
