Please join us for breakfast and honor this great group of worthy people!
Our 2nd Annual Community Peacemakers Award Breakfast will 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 CASA, (Court Appointed Special Advocates) CCAP (Child Custody Advocates) 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. Our Community Peacemaker Award Recipients will also be honored at this time. Please join us in congratulating all of our winners.
The public was invited to nominate a person and a corporation from the Mohawk Valley who most exemplified living peacefully and collaboratively. Several worthy people and organizations were nominated and our selection committee had the difficult task of choosing one person and one organization. Using a 1-5 rating system each essay was ranked as to how it met the criterion laid out in the public announcements. We think the selections are stellar. Thank you to all who took the time to make nominations.
