Greenfield Youth Engagement Award Program
Greenfield is a vibrant, multigenerational community. We are proud of our tradition of volunteerism and community involvement. GCL created an Award in 2006 in honour of four community-minded Greenfield residents who died prematurely: Les Kathan, Lorne McMaster, Vergil Mergel and Rob Tchir. They each contributed appreciably to our community by coaching baseball, shinny hockey, and coordinating bingos.
In 2019, the Greenfield Community Spirit Memorial Award Program is changing to the Greenfield Youth Engagement Award Program which has been created that like these remembered individuals, eligible candidates embody core values of citizenship and community spirit.
All youth living within the boundaries of the Greenfield Community League who are interested in leading our community can apply to serve a one year term with the Greenfield Community League Board from October 2020 – June 2021. This board position will have two key areas of focus:
