The City of DeLand is seeking nominations to recognize area residents for their volunteer efforts.
The Volunteer of the Year Award is given annually to a greater DeLand-area volunteer, who goes above and beyond the call of duty. The nominee must have been engaged in volunteer activities for a minimum of one year in the greater DeLand area.
The city is separately accepting nominations for DeLand-area volunteers under the age of 40.
“Our volunteers are a major part of the fabric of our community and play a big role in making our city a great place in which to live, work and play,” said Mayor Bob Apgar.
Both volunteers will have their names memorialized in a spot in Downtown DeLand.
