Nominate A Deserving Good Neighbor

The Wake Forest Human Relations Council is soliciting nominations for the 5th Annual Good Neighbor of the Year Award. The award is designed to recognize Wake Forest residents who work to improve the quality of life in their neighborhoods without seeking or receiving recognition for their service.

Nominees are sought in two divisions: adult and youth between the ages of 13 and 18.

A nominee must be a Town of Wake Forest resident who has made a significant contribution to the community between September 1, 2013, and August 31, 2014. Employees of the Town of Wake Forest are not eligible.

Nominations forms are available at the Wake Forest Town Hall, 301 S. Brooks Street, and may be downloaded from the town’s website at www.wakeforestnc.gov/goodneighborday.aspx.

Completed forms may be mailed to Town of Wake Forest, c/o Virginia Jones, 301 S. Brooks St., Wake Forest, NC 27587. Email nominations will be accepted at hrc@wakeforestnc.gov. Forms may also be submitted via fax to 919-435-9497. All nominations must be received by Sunday, August 31.

Nominations forms must include the names of the nominator and the nominee, along with a narrative of 400 words or less describing why the nominee deserves the Good Neighbor of the Year Award.

Mayor Vivian Jones will present a commemorative plaque to one youth and one adult winner during this year’s Good Neighbor Day on Sunday, September 21. The event will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. at Holding Park, which is at 133 W. Owen Avenue.
