Citizen of the Year nominations sought

Mar 20, 2014

Too often, people give of themselves to the community with little or no recognition.

They almost never want notice, anyway, but they certainly deserve it.

That’s why the city honors a Citizen of the Year.

Sponsored by the Edmonds Kiwanis Club in collaboration with the Edmonds Beacon, the annual event fetes those citizens who have worked to make this community special.

Last year, coordinator Juliana Van Buskirk said, “The Citizen Award began 20 years ago (now 21) and has gained momentum every time out.

“Our total intent is to honor an individual whose service to our community warrants our appreciation and gratitude.”

The process begins with you, the citizens, who must bring attention to worthy candidates.

You can do that simply by filling out the nomination form in this week's printed issue of the Beacon. Or you can enter online at the Chamber of Commerce website at

Submit the form to: Kiwanis, PO Box 221, Edmonds, WA 98020.

This year’s winner will be introduced at a future Chamber of Commerce luncheon and profiled in the Beacon.

Nominations are requested from individuals or groups in Edmonds. Size, shape or religious affiliation is of no consequence – it's the size of the deeds that counts.

Questions about the process? Van Buskirk can be reached at 206-390-5400.
