Nominate a recreation builder for an IMRA Award

 

The Interlake Municipal Recreation Association is looking to recognize community individuals or groups that go above and beyond in helping foster an active and healthy lifestyle for others. And they want your help.

Nominations for the 8th annual Recreation Builder Awards are open and the awards will be presented at the IMRA annual general meeting and banquet Oct. 22. Location to be determined.

Nomination deadline is Sept. 24.

Since 1988 the IMRA, a non-profit organization, has provided a forum for individuals and groups interested in recreation to network and improve recreation opportunities and resources in the region. The IMRA has assisted and offered workshops, seminars, training and programs that have increased participation in recreation.

Recreation, like everything else, has been greatly impacted by COVID-19 and this year’s awards will take that into consideration.

IMRA’s request to municipalities included:

"We are asking municipalities and recreation organizations to recognize (a deserving person or organization for) their important contribution by telling the story of how these individuals or organizations are the heartbeat of your community.

"In particular the last 18 months have brought increased challenges as COVID-19 has had an impact on many recreation programs. This year’s awards will reflect those challenges and how individuals have adapted as well as continuing to recognize the work of recreation builders prior to the pandemic.”

Nomination forms can be found HERE, or by contacting IMRA at 1-204-642-6014.
