Nominations will be open from Dec. 1-Jan. 20, 2023
Battle Ground’s Citizen of the Year Committee is asking the community for nominations for 2022.
“This has been another unusual year, making it difficult to see all the good works we know are happening,’’ read a statement from the committee. “We rely on your eyes and ears to help us recognize and celebrate those working hard for our community.’’
Battle Ground Citizen of the Year is a time-honored tradition, and recipients receive recognition in many ways, from riding in the annual Harvest Days Parade to having a rose ceremonially planted in their honor by the Royal Rosarians of Portland.
