NOMINATE AN UNSUNG HERO: Lake Oswego residents and community groups are being urged to submit nominations now for the next group of Unsung Heroes. The goal of the City's awards program is to recognize individuals or groups that have volunteered during the past year or over an extended period of time, but who are not generally well-known by the public for the good deeds they do. The honorees are celebrated for their selfless efforts and for being role models in the community. Nomination forms are available online at ci.oswego.or.us/publicaffairs/unsung-heroes. The deadline to nominate an Unsung Hero is Friday, Nov. 17; awards will be presented at a City Council meeting in early December. For more information, contact Diana Smith-Bouwer at 503-635-0257.
