Nominations sought for Don Horan Community Service Leader of the Year Award
Name:Nominations sought for Don Horan Community Service Leader of the Year Award
Date:September 19, 2018 - October 26, 2018
The Greensburg/Decatur County Chamber of Commerce is presently accepting nominations for one of the longest running and most prestigous awards in the community, the Don Horan Community Service Leader of the Year Award. Deadline for nominations is 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26, 2018.
Established fulltime in 1975, (the first presentation was in 1961), the recipients are selected to recognize citizens who have participated actively and continuously in community service activities in Greensburg and Decatur County.
In 2013, to commemorate the contributions business leader and philanthropist Don Horan left behind following his death, the Community Service Award was renamed The Don Horan Service Leader of the Year Award. Don was instrumental in bringing new business to our community and he was active in promoting the Greensburg/Decatur County area. He also contributed greatly to causes in our community, and preferred to stay out of the spotlight of those contributions. It is intended that such activity of those nominated be diverse and that the recipients be selected without regard to age, gender, occupation, political or religious affiliation. The record of the community participation of the nominee should be described. Such participation could include involvement with family, church, social work, civic groups, business, elderly, youth and other forms of volunteerism.
The official form may be accessed on the Greensburg/Decatur County Chamber of Commerce website or a form may be picked up at Greensburg City Hall, 314 W. Washington St., Greensburg, IN 47240.
The award will be presented at the Chamber's Annual Banquet on Friday, Nov. 16, 2018 at Indiana Grand Racing and Casino.
