COY Deadline 2017

May 25, 2017

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 2017 Citizen of the Year award. Nomination Forms are available at Citizen of the Year  or at the Winkler Community Foundation’s Office located in City Hall.

Nominations will be accepted now through June 6, 2017. The award will be presented at the Annual Citizen of the Year Banquet on Thursday, September 29. Tickets will go on sale in August.

Pay It Forward May

  Pay it Forward is something we can and should be doing all year round. The Winkler Community Foundation and Morden Area Foundation has chosen one month to be more active in our efforts – not because we have to, but because we want to. Not because we’ve experienced kindness from others, but because we want to work together to make our community strong and vibrant. Pay it Forward. Inspire others. Impact our Community.
