A community service awards program, sponsored by the Manheim Township Community Life Task Force, Community Life Services, Inc., and the Manheim Township Commissioners began last year in the Township. Two community service awards are a part of the program - a Community Spirit Award for residents of the Township and a Youth Service Award for youth in the Township, grades 7 to 12. The program is for Manheim Township residents only; individuals only; groups are excluded. Nominee must be a Manheim Township resident, but may volunteer for an organization outside of the Township.
The deadline date to submit your nomination form is Monday, September 1, 2014. Nomination forms will then be judged and winners will be selected sometime in September. Presentation of the awards will be made at a Commissioners meeting during the month of October or early November.
The Manheim Township Community Life Task Force is a coalition of citizens and representatives of various Township organizations whose mission is "to identify issues in the Manheim Township community and actively address them by coordinating resources through communication, cooperation and support". They meet at 7:00 P.M. on the first Thursday of the month at the Manheim Township Police Department.
There are a lot of really great people in the Township doing really interesting and wonderful things. The Community Life Task Force wanted to take the opportunity to honor these individuals and recognize them for their impact on our community. This is our chance to give back to them. If you know someone in the Township giving their time and volunteering with the Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, a civic organization, youth sports team, PTO, mom's club, service club, church group, etc., we want to hear about them.
