Chatham-Kent’s Good Neighbour Recognition Program is now open.
The program kicked off Oct. 12. Residents can go to Let’s Talk Chatham-Kent, provide the name of the person they would like to nominate and what action prompted the nomination.
Nominations will be sent to Chatham-Kent council for a final decision and successful nominees will receive a $25 gift card from a local business.
There is a limit of 100 cards for the 2021-22 program year.
The person nominating the neighbour will receive the card and thank you gift and be asked to deliver them to their neighbour.
Mayor Darrin Canniff said the entire idea speaks to community involvement.
“The fact that someone in the community came up with the idea and members of the community will be bringing forth the nominees is great. Adding to the fact that the successful nominees get a gift card from a local business and that the entire program is being underwritten by one of our foremost corporate citizens is fantastic,” he said in a media release.
