Call for Nominations

Invitation to Nominate 2018 Citizen of the Year The Citizen of the Year award is presented to an individual who continually gives of themselves and helps many others in the process.   At the core of Winkler are inspiring people who live here. The people who motivate and take action; who get involved and make a difference. They are the ordinary extraordinary; the behind-the-scenes catalysts; the connectors and the motivators.   They are not defined by age, background or ethnicity; their impact is not measured by the length of time they spend in our community; they are the story-makers, the people whose shining spirit moves us to share our appreciation for them.   It’s time to recognize the people in our community who shine and inspire us to do the same – it’s time for us to stand up and say “Thank you for who you are and most of all Thanks for Giving to make our community great.”   We invite you to nominate the outstanding and inspirational people in your life. The Winkler Community Foundation is now accepting nominations for the 2018 Citizen of the Year award. Nomination Forms are available at www.winklercommunityfoundation.com  or at the Winkler Community […]
