Dear Friends:


Without volunteers, Schaumburg’s Village government could not function. The Zoning Board, the Plan Commission, Schaumburg’s Board of Health are all comprised of volunteers. Volunteers organize and operate Septemberfest. Volunteers serve as members of the Village’s Cultural Commission, Bikeways Committee, and Olde Schaumburg Centre Commission. Volunteers hire Schaumburg’s police officers and fire fighters through the Police and Fire Commission.


Please volunteer some time on behalf of volunteers and nominate an adult for Volunteer of the Year, a Junior High through High School age Youth of the Year and/or a worthy organization for Volunteer Organization of the Year. We need to hear about the good that some people are doing and about the fine work that volunteer organizations are involved in. Your help will help us give these folks the recognition they deserve. Please feel free to forward the nomination materials to a colleague if an organization or individual does not immediately come to mind and/or share the information about this wonderful awards opportunity at any of your group’s upcoming events.
