Nominations Sought for Norman W. Duzen Volunteer Award

Nomination Form for Norman W. Duzen Volunteer Award 2013

Each year, the Washington County Extension Association (WCEA) honors an individual from Washington County who has contributed as a volunteer to the lives of people in Washington County.  WCEA is seeking nominations for the 2013 Recipient of the Norman W. Duzen Volunteer Award.

Norman W. Duzen had a very special place in his heart for the people of Washington County and contributed hours of volunteer time to help its residents. The Washington County Extension Association Executive Committee and the Washington County staff of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension felt that one way that they could continue to honor Norm and carry on some of his work was to establish the Norman W. Duzen Community Service Award. This award is presented on an annual basis to a person who lives in Washington County that has enhanced the lives of the county’s residents through their volunteer work. The recipient will receive a wooden keepsake box with their name engraved on it at the Washington County Extension Association’s Annual Meeting. Their name will also be added to a plaque that hangs in the University of Maine Cooperative Extension’s office.

If you would like to nominate a deserving volunteer, please contact our office at 1-800-287-1542 or 255-3345 to request a nomination form.  You may also visit us at our office at 28 Center Street in Machias or email
