The La Cañada Flintridge Coordinating Council recently began accepting nominations for the 2023 Les Tupper Community Service Awards.
Each year since 1969, the Coordinating Council has honored individuals and groups who have given outstanding service to the community. Service to the community includes volunteerism in the areas of education, youth activities, cultural pursuits, religious, civic or social service. Nominees should demonstrate leadership and service that strengthens the LCF community.
Nominations are welcome from individuals or organizations. Nomination forms have been mailed to organization presidents and are also available at City Hall, the Chamber of Commerce, the library on Oakwood Avenue, and on the council’s website at lcfcc.net.
Criteria for nominations include adults (individuals or couples), students in grades 11 or 12 and organizations or businesses that have given long-term, broad-based community service (beyond job-related duties) in the areas of education, youth activities and cultural pursuits, as well as religious, business, civic or social service. Student nominees should be actively participating in service-related activities in their school and in the LCF community.
The deadline for nominations is March 3. Recipients will be announced in late March and will be honored at a public ceremony on Monday, April 17, at Flintridge Preparatory School’s Norris Hall. The public is invited to attend.
