WANTED: Heart of Service nominations due by March 21

The three Rotary Clubs in Jefferson County and the Peninsula Daily News invite nominations for the 2016 Jefferson County Heart of Service award.

The Heart of Service recognizes the dedication and accomplishments of local people who do extraordinary things for their neighbors, their community or the environment.

The award — now in its 11th year — is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Port Townsend (noon club), the Port Townsend Sunrise Rotary Club, the East Jefferson Rotary Club and the PDN.

Nominations must be made using the accompanying coupon and must be submitted to the PDN’s Jefferson County office, 1939 E. Sims Way, Port Townsend, WA 98368, by 5 p.m. Monday, March 21.

A letter describing the merits and accomplishments of the person being nominated must be included with the coupon.

If possible, the nomination should include supporting documents, such as copies (not originals) of other awards, newspaper articles or additional letters of support.

Individuals, clubs, churches, businesses or other organizations can nominate.

But only individuals, not organizations, can be nominees.

Anyone who lives in Jefferson County can be nominated.

Recipients of the Heart of Service in the past are not eligible for a 2016 award.

But those previously nominated but not selected for a Heart of Service are eligible for renomination.

A panel of judges will review the nominations and select one to six people to receive a Heart of Service at a luncheon at Fort Worden Commons on Tuesday, May 10.

If you have any questions about the program, phone the Peninsula Daily News at 360-452-2345.
