LONG BEACH - Has someone's actions made a difference in your day? Is there a piece of property that has undergone a complete transformation? Or is there a person or idea that has made life better for the citizens and visitors of Long Beach? If so, the city of Long Beach is accepting nominations for the "Change for Good" award, which acknowledges positive assets in the Long Beach community.
"The point [of the award] is good things do happen in this town," says Community Development Director Gayle Borchard. "... It's about recognizing that something is good here - better than it was yesterday or a year ago."
The first ever "Change for Good" award was posthumously given to planning commission member Rob Dennison. Skyler Walker was presented with the second award for her dedication in maintaining the planters throughout downtown. Who or what will be the third winner? Your submission could be the next "Change for Good" recipient.
"Change for Good" nominations should be submitted to Mayor Bob Andrew at Long Beach City Hall at 115 Bolstad Avenue West (P.O. Box 310, Long Beach, WA 98631). For more information, contact Long Beach City Hall at 642-4421.
