It is time for LWVN members to think about the Jane Leighton Award recipient for 2020. As a reminder, the Jane Leighton award was created in 1980 with the following proclamation.
- Whereas Jane Leighton has for many years given generously of herself as a volunteer to the League of Women Voters, and
- Whereas, she has contributed her wisdom and strength to further the goals of the League, and
- Whereas, she has always willingly served in whatever capacity she has been called upon to fulfill, and
- Whereas, she has consistently brought humor and goodwill to all who worked with her,
- Now therefore we, the League of Women Voters of Newton, create in her honor “The Jane Leighton Volunteer-of-the-Year-Award” to be given each year to that member who exemplifies some of those qualities that we treasure in Jane.
Based on this proclamation, I am writing to invite you to submit recommendations of members who you think should be considered a nominee for the 2020 Jane Leighton Volunteer-of-the-Year-Award.
You can do this by sending name(s) to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 20th.
