Community Invited to Nominate Candidates for 21st annual Beacon Award
As part of its Diamond Jubilee Year (1922-1997), the Beacon Hill Civic Association instituted an annual community award to honor those people and groups deserving of particular recognition for their significant and sustained contributions to the Beacon Hill community. It was named the Beacon Award.
This year at the BHCA Annual Meeting on May 21, the Beacon Award will be presented for the 21st time. Over the years, the contributions made by the winners have ranged from working with neighborhood youth or the elderly, beautifying local green spaces, improving safety on the Hill, preserving and enhancing the quality of life for residents, and envisioning the future of our community.
Again this year, the BHCA is inviting members of the community to nominate individuals or groups they feel are deserving of the 20th annual Beacon Award. The final selection will be made by a ten-person committee representing a variety of organizations in the community. Please go to www.bhcivic.org or call the office 617-227-1922 for a nomination form.
Nominations must be submitted by Monday, April 9, 2018.
