Distinguished Service Awards

Have you heard about the Service Organization of the Year award for the Lebanon Chambers’ Distinguished Service Awards ceremony on Tuesday, March 10, 2015? An announcement was made to the public on the radio and in local newspapers about the opportunity to nominate the service organization you believe should receive the award. Build Lebanon Trails (BLT) would like you to consider nominating BLT for the 2014 Non-Profit Organization of the Year.

A committee uses your comments to rate the nominations based on criteria including:

  • “Does the non-profit organization provide invaluable services to the community and positively influenced our citizens.
  • Do members actively participate in service projects and programs leading to civic improvements, human welfare or environmental enhancement.

Included here is the Build Lebanon Trails’ 2014 update letter provided to inform the public about the work BLT has done in the past, currently is accomplishing, and goals for the near future.

This link will take you to the required Nomination forms. The forms are required to be submitted before February 13th to the Lebanon Chamber office at 1040 Parks Street in Lebanon. In addition, for nominations to be counted, the nomination form MUST have a signature and phone number and letter of recommendation explaining in detail why your nominee deserves the award. Please consider turning in an application for the Lebanon Service Organization you believe deserves a nomination.

We thank our supporters and our 100+ Businesses, Foundations, Organizations and Individuals that help keep the development of Lebanon’s Trail system growing.

We are a part of the Holiday’s in the Park festivities…Festivities for Holiday’s in the Park are from 2pm-7pm on December 6th at Ralston Park in Downtown Lebanon.

During the walk you will enjoy stops at historic buildings and learn bits and pieces about the history of Lebanon. This year we will be stopping by Scroggins Mill where a historian will talk about the mill and show what they’ve done recently. In addition a born and raised Lebanon resident will speak about what downtown used to look like when he was a boy and tickets will be handed out for a discount at Uncle Docs Diner.

The walk will return to Ralston Park where we will find music and entertainment, face painting, Loci Rides, foods and craft vendors and horse drawn carriage rides. In addition, Santa and Mrs. Claus will be in their Santa House to greet kids.

The gravel parking area for the Fire Hall can be reached by turning west onto Oak Street at the intersection of Oak and Main. Proceed west on Oak until you reach S. 12th Street. Turn onto S. 12th Street and BLT signs will direct you to the parking area.
