Celebration 2010

3 11 2009

A message from Yasir Naqvi MPP, Ottawa Centre


Celebration 2010 is a Community Sports Hero Award Program to recognize and honour the “unsung heroes” of community sport and recreation: coaches, association members, trainers, conveners, fundraisers, drivers, chaperones, etc, in the spirit of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. It is a local initiative, with every Ottawa MPP accepting nominations.

Perhaps it is the individual who has been going out when it’s 30 below to flood the community rink for the past decade; or someone who has been the convener of Little League baseball for 25 years. These volunteers are the backbone of community sports and recreation in Ontario and contribute immeasurably to the development and experience of athletes of all ages and levels of competitiveness.

Award recipients will be invited along with their families to attend a reception in Ottawa in the New Year and will be presented with a recognition certificate signed by the Premier of Ontario and a specially minted, limited edition Celebration 2010 medal. Only 25 recipients will be selected from Ottawa Centre and the deadline for nominations is November 13, 2009.

I encourage you and members of your organization to submit nominations for this award in less than 500 words to: Office of Yasir Naqvi, 411 Roosevelt Avenue, Suite 204, Ottawa, ON, K2A 3X9, or ynaqvi.mpp.co@liberal.ola.org.

Please be sure to include your contact information and the contact information of the nominee in your nomination. I look forward to receiving nominations for this award program. Please feel free to pass this along to your friends, family and colleagues.
