Wendell seeking Mayor’s Award nominations

The Wendell Chamber of Commerce is seeking nominees for the Mayor’s Award, which honors Wendell’s citizen of the year.

The annual award was established to recognize individuals who quietly go about the town doing the things that make Wendell a wonderful place in which to live. Founded by former mayor Proc Dean, the award honors people not in the public eye, yet emphasizes the important role these citizens have in promoting the Wendell community.

The nominees will be reviewed by the mayor’s committee and the winner will be recognized at the Wendell Chamber of Commerce banquet Thursday, Nov. 17. The deadline for submitting a nomination is Friday, Oct. 28.

To nominate an individual, write a letter explaining why your nominee is deserving of the award.

Mail it to Town Hall, Attention Mayor Virginia Gray, 15 E Fourth Street, Wendell, NC 27591 or hand-deliver to Town Hall in a sealed envelope by the deadline.
