Citizens for a Fair Ferndale announces the call for nominations for the 2015 Good Neighbor = Strong Community awards. Celebrating the ongoing efforts of those who live, work and attend school in Ferndale who value the fair and equal treatment of others and are engaged in making this happen on a daily basis, the Good Neighbor = Strong Community Awards program identifies and honors individuals, organizations and businesses in our community who are outstanding examples of “good neighbors”.
Examples of previous honorees include diverse individuals, organizations and businesses which have coordinated and planned picnics, festivals, and events in the community; promoted volunteerism; created inclusive, welcoming environments in their businesses; collaborated on art projects that celebrate diversity; tutored foreign-born Americans; sheltered the homeless; creatively overcame personal challenges while striving to help others; established book club networks; spoken out against injustice in our community.
Citizens for a Fair Ferndale will hold a special event in early May to present the awards for 2015. Nominations are now open, and CFF invites the community to celebrate a “good neighbor” – someone who is committed to building, preserving, maintaining and improving the quality of life in their neighborhoods and our community.
