Seeking Sustainable Community Builders
Do you know an individual, group, club, agency or society who has made Cranbrook a better, stronger community? If so, we would like to hear from you.
The City of Cranbrook is partnering with Cranbrook Connected and the Cranbrook and District Community Foundation to recognize those who have made an outstanding contribution to the social, arts/cultural, economic or environmental sustainability of our community.
According to Chris Ayling, Chair of Cranbrook Connected, the Sustainable Community Builder Award’s impact also goes beyond the recognition of an achievement.
“The concept of ‘sustainability’ can seem abstract to some people, so the award puts a name and a face to a specific action or actions in our community,” said Ayling. “The award winner becomes a role model for all of us and hopefully encourages others to volunteer, to work with like-minded people, to join a group or organization to build a better and stronger community.”
The members of Cranbrook Connected are managing the Award application process for selection of the winning candidate. The Cranbrook and District Community Foundation is partnering with the City to provide $500 to the Award winner to donate to the charity of their choice. The award is sponsored by a legacy fund left by The Knights of Pythias, Crescent Lodge #33 of Cranbrook.
