2007 Dolly and Andy Holland Lopez Spirit Award nominations

Nominations for the 2007 Dolly and Andy Holland Lopez Spirit Award are now open. The Award, which is presented to the individual or couple whose community involvement makes them the island’s unsung heroes, will be announced during October 2007 and celebrated with an island-wide potluck in early November at the Community Center.

The Lopez Spirit award is named for Dolly and Andy Holland, long-time Lopez Island residents whose involvement and commitment to the island community lives on through the individuals and organizations they touched.

To nominate someone for the Spirit Award, describe the ways they have embodied the Lopez Spirit: friendly, caring, reliable, helpful, unselfish, loving, generous, and tolerant. The nominees may be well-known or not, but they must belong to the Lopez community and have, in some way, worked to improve the lives of the people on Lopez Island.

Forms outlining the criteria for nomination are available at the Lopez Library, Lopez Village Market and Lopez Center. Send your completed nomination form with all the required information to Lopez Spirit Award Committee, Lopez Center for Community and the Arts, PO Box 291, no later than October 15.

Previous years’ candidates may be nominated again, along with new nominees. Past recipients may not be nominated again.
