Duxbury Community Volunteer Awards: Nominations Now Open!

From maintaining flowers in the major intersections around town to coaching Duxbury Youth Soccer, from serving as Classroom Parent to serving on a town Committee, Duxbury volunteers have always made things happen in our town. To recognize the power of Duxbury volunteers, the Duxbury Community Volunteer Awards are back this summer.

The Awards were started in 1996 by the Welch Healthcare and Retirement Group as a way to give back to the community by providing a forum for recognizing the important role volunteers play in our town. Duxbury volunteers show their devotion to civic causes, environmental issues, youth programs, historical endeavors, and more. Many local initiatives would never have been started and many programs would not be as successful as they are today if not for the passion and devotion of town volunteers.

Please consider nominating a volunteer. You don’t have to look far to see a neighbor, friend, or fellow committee member to find a volunteer worth recognizing. The Duxbury Community Volunteer Awards are a chance to recognize members of our community who are passionate about their volunteer commitment.  Nominees need to be Duxbury residents and their volunteer contributions must be unpaid and benefit the town of Duxbury. Volunteers usually don’t expect a “thank you,” but this is our chance to recognize the people who make our community a better place to live.

You can complete the form online here. Paper forms are also available at the Senior Center, Town Hall, the Duxbury Library, and The Village at Duxbury.

Please return completed nominations by 5 PM on Thursday, August 8th to:
