Nominations open for 2019 ACE award, recognizing unsung heroes

BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – Greater Falls Connections is inviting community members to nominate an unsung hero for the annual Active Community Engagement award. This award recognizes a local individual who is active in community engagement in the Greater Falls area. There are members of the community who work tirelessly to make a difference. They coach teams, organize fundraisers, or volunteer at our local hospitals, schools, churches, and more. Consistently, they selflessly devote their time and efforts, going above and beyond without thought of reward or recognition. For example, a hero may exceed the requirements of their job or in their role as a volunteer. They could work with community organizations such as Parks Place, the Rockingham Free Public Library, SEVCA, or Our Place, etc.

You can help Greater Falls Connections to recognize an unsung hero by filling out a nomination form. Stop by Parks Place or the Rockingham Free Public Library to pick up a paper nomination form or go to the Greater Falls Connections Facebook page at to fill out the online form. Paper forms can be faxed to Parks Place at 1-802-463-8138. Forms should be submitted by Monday, July 29.

The 2019 ACE award winner will be announced during the annual Greater Falls Connections Barbecue Wednesday, July 31 at the Rockingham Recreation Center.

Previous winners from 2018 include Bonnie Anderson and Hailee Galandak-Cochran. The 2019 winner will be determined by a group of previous winners and the Greater Falls Connections staff members. Recipients of this award are the unsung heroes within our community who foster positive change and are dedicated to creating safe, healthy and fun options for youth, families and the community at large.
