“Good Neighbor Award”
In an effort to promote community involvement and civic pride, the Waynesfield Police Department has created the “Good Neighbor Award” to recognize outstanding individuals who contribute to moving the Village of Waynesfield in a positive direction.
This recognition will be awarded quarterly to an individual or individuals who go above and beyond daily tasks to help someone within the Village of Waynesfield. Winners need not be residents of Waynesfield if they positively impact someone or something within the village limits. For example, if a resident of a nearby town decides to come into Waynesfield and pick up litter, he or she may be eligible for the “Good Neighbor Award”.
There is not a nominating process as the discretion of the winner is left up to the Waynesfield Police Department, but suggestions as to who – along with why the person should be chosen – may be made to Police Chief Nathan Motter by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org, sending a private message on the Police Department’s Facebook page, or by calling 419-568-4991 ext. 103 and leaving a voicemail.
Recipients of the “Good Neighbor Award” will receive the following:
1) A gift certificate to a local business
2) A certificate of appreciation
3) Their picture and brief biography featured in the Village’s Municipal Building, on the village’s website, and police department Facebook page
4) An acknowledgement at a village council meeting
If you would like to make a donation in the form of a gift certificate to a business, please contact Chief Motter at the above information.
The “Good Neighbor Award” will be announced on the Waynesfield PD Facebook page on or about December 30, March 30, June 30, and September 30 of each year.
*Village of Waynesfield elected officials and employees are NOT eligible for the “Good Neighbor Award”.
