The City of Lebanon will be celebrating volunteerism this spring with the presentation of the Mayor Lyle Anderson Gold Leaf Award for Volunteer Service.
The award is scheduled to be presented by Mayor Jared Carr at the regular city council meeting scheduled for April 24. Two recipients - a youth and an adult- will receive this honor.
To qualify for consideration, recipients must be a resident of Lebanon, or the volunteer service must be performed in Lebanon. The youth award is open to youth under age 18 at the time of service and the adult award is open to those 18 and older at the time of service.
Following the presentation of awards, the 2023 recipients will have their name added to a plaque hanging in Lebanon City Hall. Organizers plan to add two new names to the plaque each year going forward. The city's website also hosts a page for the award that features each year's recipients.
The award was established in 2019 and last year’s recipients were Ethel Boyer and Katherine Schneider.
Nomination forms can be found on the city website www.lebanonmissouri.org/GoldLeafAward. All nomination forms are due by 5 p.m. April 7th.
