After celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Community Spirit Awards at the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts last fall, the Town of Oakville has decided to put this year’s event on pause to review opportunities to expand the community recognition program.
Take the online survey today and provide us with feedback that will help guide how we celebrate our community champions. The short survey takes five minutes to complete and is strictly confidential and anonymous. Residents will have the option to provide an email address if they would like a chance to win a prize pack. Survey closes October 7.
Oakville residents spend countless hours volunteering their time to make our town a better place to live, work and play. Oakville Community Spirit Awards are presented to individuals, organizations, businesses and community groups who have demonstrated ongoing leadership, dedication and involvement in Oakville.
