Pitkin County is now accepting nominations for outstanding volunteers to be honored for the 2015 Pitkin County Cares Volunteer Service Awards. Citizens are invited to submit nominations for people who are making a difference in the community.
The Pitkin County Cares Volunteer Service Awards were established 15 years ago to honor individuals and groups for their outstanding service, leadership and civic involvement.
The Helen Klanderud and Greg Mace awards are included among the top categories in the annual Pitkin County Cares Volunteer Service Award recognition program. The Helen Klanderud award was created in memory of the late Helen Klanderud who was active in many civic endeavors, including a stint as the Mayor of Aspen. The Greg Mace Award created in memory of longtime Mountain Rescue Aspen volunteer, Greg Mace.
In addition to these overall volunteer categories, winners will be chosen for their service in the following sub-categories: Children/youth, Seniors, Health, Community Pride, Education, Good Samaritan, Environment, Rising Star (18 years and younger) and Exceptional One-Time Events.
Pitkin County Commissioners will recognize those selected for the local awards during a televised regular meeting at a date to be announced in August.
