About the Humpty's Awards|
Montgomery is good citizenship!
Humpty's Restaurant in the TC Village, has stepped forward to offer an award for Montgomery residents who demonstrate special community citizenship! This is an exciting way to reward people who build our community, keeping it vibrant and safe, injecting energy and creativity to enhance our quality of life, and stimulating us to work together to foster friendship and inclusiveness in our community.
Of course, all Montgomery residents comprise an essential part of the citizenry of the community! We all play a role in this it is important to recognize that the concept of community implies engagement and commitment. Let's face it we do not simply sleep in Montgomery we LIVE here. We relate to the spaces and places as well as to the people who inhabit them. We have at least nodding friendships with our neighbours and, if we have dogs or kids, we know the streets, parks and playgrounds of Montgomery! Most of us patronize local businesses and might even be on a first-name basis with some of our service people. At the same time, we take advantage of community-led initiatives and services, such as the Montgomery Messenger, programs for kids at the Community Centre, sports programs, the annual Community Clean-up, the Community Garden, among others. All together this is the community of which we are citizens.
Naturally, some people have the time and inclination to be proactive in their role of Montgomery community members. These are our community leaders, in education, in business, in service to the council, and in work on special community initiatives. We all benefit greatly from their commitment and responsiveness to our community.
To recognize these special community members, we will be setting in motion a Humpty's Community Member of the Month Award. The generous offer of Mr. Ron Warren, Area Manager of Humpty's Restaurants International Inc. to show support to special citizens of Montgomery includes a commemorative plaque and Humpty's Gift Certificate. Winning good citizens will be announced in the Montgomery Messenger and on our website!
