Community

Have a heart

SIDNEY — Do you know an individual or group who has provided outstanding volunteer or community service to Peninsula residents?

If so, organizers of the 15th annual Hearts of the Community Volunteer Awards want to hear from you by Jan. 30. That’s the nominations deadline  for the awards event, which is jointly sponsored by the Peninsula News Review and Beacon Community Services.

“The Peninsula has many, many deserving volunteers so we’re hoping for lots of nominations from the community,” says Penny Thomsen, a North Saanich resident who chairs Beacon Community Service’s volunteer Board of Directors.

All nominees will be honoured at a special community luncheon on Feb. 21. Up to six awards – including a $1,000 scholarship for the recipient of the youth award -- will also be presented.

Nomination forms are available at www.beaconcs.ca or at the Peninsula News Review office, Beacon’s Third Street office, the SHOAL Activity Centre, or any Beacon Peninsula thrift shop.

Nominations are due by 4 p.m. on Jan. 30.
