The 57th Nelson’s Citizen of the Year award returns this spring presented by the Nelson Star.
The annual award recognizes people who have made a significant difference in the lives of Nelson’s residents.
Nominations can be made online at nelsonstar.com (click here) until Feb. 28. The winner will be announced in the March 10th edition of the Nelson Star.
This year’s event is sponsored by Nelson Ford, the Nelson and District Chamber of Commerce, Save-On-Foods, the Nelson and District Credit Union, and the Nelson Star.
The Citizen of the Year was first awarded in 1964 to Red Cross volunteer Helen Morris. Last year’s co-recipients were Rob Wright and Keith Bridger, for their work with the Nelson Tennis Club.
