2014 Community Peacemaker Awards Breakfast
On Tuesday, October 14th, 2014, The Peacemaker Program Inc., will be holding our annual Community Peacemaker Award Breakfast. An elegant buffet will be served at the Radisson Hotel at 7:30am. First and foremost, we honor our volunteers; those dedicated individuals who are exceptional all year long, and who make our community a more peaceful place to live. In addition, special awards will be presented to one individual and one organization who have been nominated and chosen as exceptional Community Peacemakers. Tickets are $20.00 each*. Tables of ten are available for $175.00. Please register here to attend.
This year, we will be recognizing one exceptional individual from the community, as well as one organization. The nomination form is available here.
The Community Peacemaker Awards serve as the standard for acknowledging community activism that promotes collaborative conflict resolution in the Mohawk Valley.
The Peacemaker Program, Inc. will honor a resident of Oneida, Herkimer or Madison Counties with our Community Peacemaker Award.
Additionally, this year we will honor an organization from Oneida, Herkimer or Madison Counties that works to promote peace and collaboration in our community.
ATTENTION! Do you know a person or organization that uses innovative and collaborative approaches to help our community become a more peaceful place? This is the time to acknowledge the good service performed all around us. There are people and organizations that are diligently working to solve problems and bring people together. Let us find them, shake their hands and recognize their talents.
Our selection committee will choose one individual, and one organization, from the nominations. The honorees will be recognized at our Community Peacemaker Breakfast on October 14th and presented artwork designed specifically for The Community Peacemaker award by Michelle Roberts, an acclaimed local artist.
Our annual Community Peacemakers Award Breakfast will also honor those dedicated individuals who are exceptional all year long, and who make our agency's mission possible. This list includes our specialists; mediators and arbitrators, as well as our CCAP (Child Custody Advocate Program) and SDMC (Surrogate Decision Making Committee) volunteers. We will also honor particular people, chosen by their peers, from our court system and community that work tirelessly for the good of the Peacemaker Program and their local areas.
The selection committee will be looking for nominees that use innovative techniques or ideas that show appreciable change in our community; people who live kind, compassionate, and generous lives. For example, the person or organization may have established a mentoring program, created a safe place for children after school, established a community discussion panel to bring awareness to their neighborhood issues, planted a community garden, developed a creative fund-raiser, or worked in a peer program that showed improvement in bullying.
We are taking nominations from the public! If you know a person or business in the Mohawk Valley who helps make this community a more peaceful place, consider nominating them by filling out the online form.
ATTENTION! The nomination form is available here.
