Arnold Civic Award Nominations

The League of Women Voters of Newport County is accepting nominations for the fifth annual Joan C. Arnold Civic Participation Award. Last year’s recipients were George and Linda Warner of Jamestown.

Joan Arnold was a longtime member of the league and served in many other community organizations. She believed in her power to make a difference in the world, and if she saw a need and felt she had skills to offer to help, she would step forward.

After her death, the League wanted her legacy to continue, so the award was established.

Nominees must be a resident of or work in Newport County. The award will be given to an individual(s), an organization or group. The deadline for applications is Oct. 7, and the award ceremony will take place in early November.

Applications are available at lwvri.org or by contacting Susan Wells at 401-378-7595 or swells229@gmail.com.
