Nominations are now being sought for honorees at the village of Schaumburg's 33rd annual Volunteer of the Year Luncheon, to be held at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 7.

For a third of a century, village officials have been recognizing those whose donations of time and effort are so important to making the community what it is.

 

Nominations in the categories of adult volunteer, youth volunteer and volunteer organization are due by Wednesday, March 25.

Nominees in the youth category must be either junior high or high school age.

The luncheon will be held at Chandler's, 401 N. Schaumburg Road, in the clubhouse of the Schaumburg Golf Club. Members of the public need not be nominees or nominators to attend.

The cost is $35 per person -- due by March 30 -- but there is no charge for nominees.

All nominees will receive a certificate, while the three winners will receive an award as well. A panel of judges will select the winners in each category.

Schaumburg Mayor Tom Dailly will deliver welcoming remarks. The luncheon's keynote speaker has not yet been announced. Chicago Blackhawks broadcaster and former player Eddie Olczyk fulfilled those duties last year.

To nominate a person or organization for the award, or register to attend the luncheon, visit villageofschaumburg.com.
