The Ellendale Community Action Group will sponsor an “Unsung Hero of our community award” during the 2017 Ellendale Days Summer Celebration. Area citizens are invited to nominate someone who they feel has gone above and beyond for volunteering in our community. Nominees can be any of the following: someone who has done a lot of volunteer work in our community in recent years, Lives in our area (city and country), perhaps has done a random act of kindness for others, and loves our community and wants to make it better for everyone.

Nomination forms can be picked up at the following sites in Ellendale: Ellendale Liquor Store, Floors 4U, Lerbergs, Security Bank, and Steve’s Meat Market. Deadline for forms to be filled out and returned to an above business is May 31. The final decision for naming the honored person will be made by members of the Ellendale Community Action Group (ECAG) and the winner will be honored on Friday evening, June 23 during the Community Bingo nite. This person will also be riding in the Ellendale Days Parade on Saturday, June 24.  Now is the time to make your nomination for this worthwhile citizen to be honored.  This will become an annual event for our community summer celebration.
