Founders Award nominations open
- Published: January 6, 2014
The James A. McKee Association, or the Men’s Group, is once again seeking nominations or its Founders Award for Distinguished Community Service, given annually to an organization, group or individual to recognize either extraordinary or unusual service to the community.
Nominees may include any organization, group or individual in the greater Yellow Springs community, and may include a deceased individual. All the services of nominees must be voluntary and uncompensated and, in the case of a nominated group, all or most of its members must contribute their services. The volunteer service must satisfy a community need, which must be a significant contribution to community through a single act or event, or through consistent effort over a sustained period of time.
Typewritten nominations of no more than three pages must be submitted stating the name of the nominator, the name of the nominee and a narrative stating the nature of the volunteer community service and the reason why that voluntary community service should be recognized by the award.
Nominations must be submitted by Feb. 15, and may be mailed to the James A McKee Group at PO Box 263, Yellow Springs, OH 45387.
