Beginning with the inaugural Living Treasure Awards in 2018, Human Services honors deserving individuals who are nominated, and selected by committee, for their outstanding dedication and consistent community service. Any Woodbridge resident, age 60 or over, who has demonstrated positive actions to improve the quality of life for Woodbridge, has contributed and may continue to contribute their time to enhance our community as a whole, and has performed this work on a volunteer, unpaid basis, is eligible for nomination for the Living Treasure Award.   Friends, co-workers, principals, teachers, students, neighbors, group leaders, clergy, and volunteer agencies are among those who may nominate a candidate for consideration.  Family members may not nominate a relative.

Updates for the upcoming awards will be posted here, in the Town's Newsletter and in local newspapers.
