March 2, 1995


Do you know someone who has done some volunteer work lately?

If so, the Roger Hill Volunteer Center wants to hear from you.

The center is accepting applications for its fourth annual Celebration of Volunteerism.

Awards for four outstanding volunteer efforts will be presented at a reception during National Volunteer Week, April 23 through 29. All nominees also will be recognized.

"Even if you feel like the person you nominate isn't going to win, it's a great way to recognize them and have the community be able to thank them for the work they've done," said Lanaea Heine, coordinator of the volunteer center.

The Award of Excellence will be presented to a person who has volunteered a minimum of 10 years. Awards for volunteer of the year for 1994, student volunteer and group volunteer project also will be presented.

"Lawrence and Douglas County have an amazing spirit of volunteerism," Heine said. "If there are people in our community who know of anyone, then I encourage them to make the nomination."

Nomination forms are available at the Roger Hill Volunteer Center, 211 E. Eighth, Suite G., or with other community organizations.

To be eligible for an award, nominees do not have to be Douglas County residents, but must have done volunteer work here.

Nominees also must have done their work without financial compensation. Previous award recipients are ineligible.

Nominees will be judged on their level of involvement, impact, amount of time spent and the number of unusual challenges that were overcome.

The nomination deadline is March 10.

For more information, call the Roger Hill Volunteer Center, 865-5030.
