Service Tree Program
The City of Lucas has established a Service Tree Award Program that allows for annual recognition of an individual, business, youth or civic group who has contributed a significant and useful service to the community. The award consists of planting and dedicating a living tree at the Lucas Community Park in the recipients honor. All nominees will be reviewed, and finalists selected by the Lucas City Council. Service Tree Awards will be presented to the recipients at the Lucas Founders Day event held each year. The recipients will be notified in advance to allow family and friends to attend.
To recommend an individual, business, or group for recognition please fill out the Service Tree Award Nominating Form below. Nominees to be selected for recognition should meet the following criteria:
- Actions being recognized should benefit the City of Lucas or its residents in a significant manner.
- Nominee may be individual, youth, Church group, Civic or neighborhood group (ex: HOA, garden club), youth group (ex: Boy or Girl Scout troop, 4-H Club), local business, local charity or other organization.
- The Individual must live in the City of Lucas or have lived in the City of Lucas corporate limits during the time the service was performed. If a business or church, they must be located within the City of Lucas.
