Nominate a great volunteer for the hall of fame

Nominate a great volunteer for the hall of fame
Posted on 02/13/2019

Whether they’re greeting visitors with a friendly smile, clearing swaths of sprawling invasive honeysuckle or judging samples of the area’s finest chili, Lenexa volunteers are a key contributor to our community’s warm, welcoming spirit.

If you know an exceptional Lenexa volunteer who gives unselfishly of their time, energy and talents, consider nominating them for Lenexa’s Volunteer Hall of Fame!

We’re looking for individual citizens who have made significant contributions to our community through volunteer work, whether they live, work or complete their volunteer activities in Lenexa.

Those selected for the Volunteer Hall of Fame will be recognized at an April 2019 City Council meeting. They will also be celebrated at a banquet for city volunteers who have logged significant hours of service.

The nomination deadline is March 8.

The City of Lenexa would like to recognize individual citizens who have made significant contributions to the community through their outstanding volunteer efforts. We are looking for those special people who stand head and shoulders above the rest —people who have used their time and energy to make a difference in our community.
