The Warwick Valley Rotary Club, a non-profit service organization of local community-minded men and women, are seeking nominations for Citizen of the Year. Stan Martin and Leo Kaytes, Sr., both former Warwick Rotary presidents, are co-chairing the event. Eleven years ago, they were instrumental in restarting the “Warwick Citizen of the Year” program which was inaugurated in 1968 by the now defunct Warwick Jaycees.
Kaytes encouraged community input on candidates for 2018-2019 Warwick Citizen of the Year. He pointed out that two additional persons will be recognized with “Outstanding Community Service Awards.”
The deadline for nominations is Sat., Sept. 1. The awards dinner is scheduled for Wed., Oct. 24, at the Landmark Inn, located at 526 Rte. 94 in Warwick. A letter outlining the accomplishments and reasons for the nomination can be mailed to the Warwick Town Supervisor, 132 Kings Hwy., Warwick NY 10990, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
