Nominations now open for annual women of distinction awards

Rotary Club of Langley Central accepting applications until Jan. 15

Do you know a woman who is an unsung hero? Someone who volunteers her time unselfishly, with no thought of payment?

The Rotary Club of Langley Central would like to know.

On March 4, the club is holding its annual Celebration of International Women’s Day Luncheon at Newlands Golf and Country Club, where they will honour three women of distinction.

The award winners are women who have made valuable contributions to the Langley community and/or international organizations, and who demonstrate strong leadership, innovation and creativity.

This award is open to women of any age living in the greater Langley area, Langley City or Langley Township who have been a volunteer and not performed the services as part of the organization in which they work. They cannot have received payment for such services.

They also must have a minimum of two years in the volunteer position.

The deadline for nominations is Jan. 15.
