Service Tree Program
The City of Lucas has established a Service Tree Award Program that allows for appropriate annual recognition of an individual, business, youth or civic group who has contributed a significant and useful service to the community. The award will consist of the planting of a living tree on City property and presentation of an award plaque by the Mayor that will be placed by the Tree. The presentation will take place during the annual City of Lucas Founders Day event on May 1, 2019. The recipient(s) will have their picture taken and the photo, along with brief article of recognition, will be in the City’s monthly newsletter, the Lucas Leader.
To recommend an individual, business, or group for recognition please fill out the Service Tree Award Nominating Form below. Nominations must be submitted no later than January 31, 2019. Nominees to be selected for recognition should meet the following criteria:
