Nominations are now being accepted for the 2011 Edmonds Citizen Of The Year, sponsored since 1993 by the Edmonds Kiwanis Club in collaboration with the Edmonds Beacon.
The selection is guided by the principles of Kiwanis International:
· To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than the material values of life.
· To encourage the daily living of the golden rule in all human relationships.
· To promote the adoption and application of higher social, business and professional standards.
· To develop by precept and example a more intelligent, aggressive and serviceable citizenship.
· To provide a practical means to form enduring friendships, render altruistic service and build better communities.
· To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism and goodwill.
Last year’s winner was Peggy Kennedy, coordinator of the Edmonds Food Bank.
