2018 Order of Parry Sound

Do you know someone who has made a difference in our community?    All residents of the Town of Parry Sound and contributors to the Town of Parry Sound are eligible for the Order of Parry Sound - our community's highest honour for achievement.  While the Mayor of the Town of Parry Sound, who is the Chancellor and Principal Companion of the Order, approves the final appointments, it all starts with the public taking the time to nominate someone who deserves this special recognition.

This will be the eighteenth year for the Order of Parry Sound.  It will be awarded to a deserving person who has enriched the lives of others in our community.  The Order of Parry Sound's motto is They Desire a Better Community - words of which many volunteers bring to life.

If you know someone who might fit this description and would like to nominate them, print the nomination form and check the Order of Parry Sound recipients or drop by the municipal office to obtain a hard copy of the nomination form.  (Please note that serving federal, provincial and municipal politicians and judges are not eligible, and no posthumous appointments are made.) 

An independent Advisory Council evaluates the nominations and recommends candidates to the Mayor.  The number of appointments each year is limited, and not everyone nominated is selected.  To avoid disappointment and to respect the privacy of the people consulted, the Mayor keeps nominations confidential, and we ask that the nominators and others involved do the same. 

 The deadline for all nominations for the 2018 Award is Friday December 7, 2018.
