It’s that time of year to recognize the city’s unsung heroes!
The City of DeLand is seeking nominations to recognize area residents for their volunteer efforts. The Volunteer of the Year Award is given annually to a greater DeLand-area volunteer, who goes above and beyond the call of duty. The nominee must have been engaged in volunteer activities for a minimum of one year in the greater DeLand area.
The City is separately accepting nominations for DeLand-area volunteers under the age of 40.
Nominations, which may be submitted through an online form on the city’s website or at City Hall, will be accepted until September 16. Forms are also available at City Hall (1st Floor Utility Billing), MainStreet DeLand Association and the Sanborn Activity and Event Center.
The winners will have their names memorialized via plaques that will be placed at the corner of Woodland Boulevard and New York Avenue in Downtown DeLand.
For those seeking additional information, please contact City Clerk Julie Hennessy at firstname.lastname@example.org
