Families and friends of the winners, along with all members of the public, are invited to help congratulate the winners at a celebratory event on Thursday, October 26, at 6:30 p.m., in the Library Community Room at 177 West Street, in Smithville. The Township’s Community Recognition Awards recognize residents who, through personal involvement, leadership abilities, and selfless giving of their time and talent, have positively impacted the West Lincoln community. The idea to establish a program that recognizes outstanding community members was originally brought to Council in April of 2022 by a Beaver Scout named Dylan Pilot. Following Township Staff’s research and recommendations, Council approved the Community Recognition Program Policy and Terms of Reference in September of 2022.
