Who’s your superhero?

Superheroes come in all forms, including in the form of everyday people who are making positive and inspiring contributions in their community. There are so many people doing great things in our Eastern Townships community, and Townshippers’ Association wants to recognize them, but we need your help! 

Townshippers’ wants to put a celebrate those people and groups who are making a difference with our two community leadership awards, the Outstanding Townshippers (OT) and Young Townships Leader Award (YTLA).

Community superheroes play a valuable role that truly makes a difference. They give their time to helping out in our schools, fundraise for local causes, work to make sure our vulnerable community members are connected and spearhead activities that fill a need.

The goal of Townshippers’ community awards is to give these deserving people a huge “thank you” the difference they make in our community through a lifetime of service or a single act. We’ll also share the story of who they are and the impact of their service, which may inspire more people to do good for others, in our biannual magazine, Townshippers.  

You can help by nominating a person you know who deserves a little public recognition through one of the awards by noon, Friday, August 25, 2017.

The Outstanding Townshippers recognizes the dedication, generosity, and talent of individuals, couples, and groups, from all walks of life, who help make their community a better place to live, work and raise a family. Nominations can be made, or forms can be downloaded, at www.Townshippers.org/OT.

The Young Townships Leader Award’s are for young leaders aged 15-35 who are changing their communities by being inspiring and involved. Nominations and details at www.Townshippers.org/YTLA.

Nomination packages can also be picked up at Townshippers’ offices in Lac-Brome, at 584 Knowlton Rd. or in Sherbrooke, at 257 Queen.
