There are hundreds—perhaps thousands—of individuals in our community who give freely of their time and energy to improve to improve the lives of others and to improve the image of our city. The “Celebrate Stockton is Magnificent” event committee and the Record wish to honor five of these individuals in the upcoming city-wide celebration on Saturday, October 5th from noon to 3 PM.
The focus of this year’s event is to improve civic pride and recognize magnificent individuals who work hard to establish our city as someplace special, often without reward. The free event brings together non-profit organizations and volunteer musicians, entertainers, local sports teams, and others to entertain the attendees and spread a positive message about our community. If you know someone who works tirelessly to improve the lives of others or the City’s image and you would like to nominate them at this year’s Unsung Heroes competition please complete a nomination form available at StocktonMagnificent.com. The Unsung Hero committee will review the nominations and select five individuals whose commitment to the betterment of our community should be showcased as an example for others to become involved in making Stockton magnificent. The winners will be honored at the October 5th event as well as showcased in the Record for their contributions. Nomination forms must be emailed, mailed, or faxed to the committee by September 2nd. Nomination forms are also available at Yogurt My Way on the Miracle Mile.
Nominees must currently live in Stockton and be actively helping to improve the lives of those in Stockton or to improve the image of Stockton. Although volunteer work is preferable, the committee will consider those individuals who go above and beyond what is required of their employment to improve others’ lives.
If you would like to volunteer for the event please go to the event website—StocktonMagnificent.com and sign up! This civic-pride building event is free to the public and free to nonprofit organizations to participate. Organizations, youth groups, sports teams, cheer-groups and individuals are welcome to help make the third Stockton is Magnificent event the best celebration of the positive aspects of our great city. Join the fun and get involved in our community!
