They are dedicated men and women, all ages and from all walks of life who have used their time and talents to make District 5 a better community in which to live. On Saturday, September 10th, they will receive a “thank you” from the community they have served.
Councilwoman Cheri Bryant Hamilton will honor the 2011 Molly Leonard Community Service Award winners during the District 5 Community Celebration Concert in Shawnee Park.
“We owe a debt of gratitude to these volunteers who have helped all of us,” says Hamilton. “This is a chance for the community to shine a spotlight on a group of dedicated group of people who have never asked for anything in return for their service. This is our way of honoring them.”
The Awards are named after the late Molly Leonard, who was known to many in District 5 as the mayor of Portland. She was a dedicated volunteer and community activist in the area. This is the sixth year these Community Service Awards have been handed out in honor of her impact on the community.
The honorees were nominated by friends and neighbors to the District 5 Advisory Committee who will make the presentations.
