Volunteer Service Nominations
In August 25th, 2018 another valued and deserving local will be awarded the 4th Annual Jere Melo Volunteer Service Award.   This award was created to honor the memory of Fort Bragg’s beloved Mayor, community leader and tireless volunteer, Jere Melo.
We are looking to members of the public and community to nominate that special someone who puts in time, energy and effort to help create a better place for others.   Do you know someone like this, someone who is always there to lend a hand, go out of their way, or always be the first to join in when needed?  Do you know of a special coach, a teacher, a friend or colleague who really deserves recognition for going the extra mile “just because”?  Or that someone who has worked tirelessly on a project with no expectation of reward or recognition?
 We would really like to hear a little about these people and to consider their good works in our search for that special award winner.  All nominees will be honored for their effort, but we do need to hear from you so that we can identify these hard-working individuals
