Crystal Awards: Act Now to Nominate a Dedicated Community Volunteer

Do you know a dedicated volunteer, someone who devotes a great deal of time and energy to making Sun Lakes a better place in which to live?

Consider nominating that person for a Crystal Award. Nomination forms are available at each of the three HOA reception desks and are online at each of the HOA websites. Anyone may nominate a member who lives in Sun Lakes Country Club, Cottonwood Palo Verde, and IronOaks.

The Crystal Award program started in 2010 and recognizes those who make our community a better place to live. To date, 100 outstanding volunteers have been honored. Each year a committee of previous awardees chooses new honorees from each of the three Sun Lakes communities.

The nominees include people who have served their HOAs on the board or committees; people who have stepped up in service organizations like Neighbors Who Care, Rotary, and Lions Club; people who have volunteered to educate and entertain us through organizations like New Adventures in Learning or the Sun Lakes Community Theater; and people who are leaders of organized community activities like golf leagues, tennis tournaments, card and game groups, travel and hiking outings, and various other clubs.

Recipients will be honored at a banquet at Sun Lakes Country Club on March 10, 2024.

So, take a look around your community and remember someone who goes above and beyond to serve others and honor that person through your nomination. Nomination forms must be sent and received at the P.O. box by 4 p.m. on Dec. 6. (Crystal Awards, P.O. Box 12102, Chandler, AZ 85248-9998).
