Call for Spirit Award Nominations!
Dear Friends,

It’s time to share your Spirit Award Nominations!

This year we are going to be doing things a bit differently. We’d like for you to share a story of Joy that exemplifies the Lopez Spirit.

We are encouraging people to record short videos (30 seconds to a maximum of two minutes) of themselves making their nomination and to submit them online If you would like help recording your video, please let us know by responding to this e-mail!

While we are suggesting that people submit videos, we are also accepting written nominations and photos.

Nominations are due January 16th and the video celebration will be released in February.

The celebration will be virtual and so everyone can participate by making a submission and also watch the final video compilation.

For those of you who are new to The Andy and Dolly Holland Lopez Spirit Award, it was inspired by the retired couple who, after a working life of public service in forestry and education, moved here before the Lopez Center had been built. Seeing the need, the Hollands presented a check for $50,000 to the Board. "Get going with the project," Andy said, kicking off a fundraiser that paid for construction of the building that stands today. He would later remark that it was "his smoking and drinking money and that he didn't smoke or drink!"

The Spirit Award has been given since 2000 to a Lopez individual, couple or partners who have consistently improved the lives of all Lopezians. These people give to the community in extraordinary ways: unselfishly, reliably, lovingly, with tolerance and integrity. They are often the community's unsung heroes. In 2020, the Spirit Award went virtual and all of the nominees were honored in 75 minute virtual celebration.

Thank you for considering making a nomination!
