The Stanley Community Association and Martino’s Restaurant have joined together to create the “High Five Award.” This award will be given out monthly to a member of the community that has gone above and beyond to serve others and the area around them. We wanted to mirror the important traits that National Honor Society highlighted on the benches around town. It is important not only to recognize the traits that make Stanley great but also the individuals that enhance our city; people should be celebrated for their contribution therefore we have chosen 5 character traits that we would like to honor with this award. The traits include being supportive, trustworthy, nurturing, loyal and extraordinary in action. Members of the community are encouraged to nominate a fellow community member for next month’s award by filling out a nomination form available at our website www.stanleycommunity.us, visiting our facebook page or pick up a nomination form at Martino’s Restaurant or Reclaimed Tavern. Winner receives the High Five Award certificate and a Martino’s Restaurant gift card.
August 2022 Winner: Tom Larson
The winner of the 1st High Five Award is Tom Larson; he received 5 nominations for his work with the Independence Day Celebration. A nominator said “Tom spear headed this amazing event for our great little community. He loves helping with community stuff when he can and really cares about the direction we are all trying to take this community.” Another said “He has gone above and beyond in our community to make this a fantastic town!!” When presented with this award Tom echoed that he wouldn’t have been able to do it without the community coming together “It was the effort of many volunteers and sponsors to put this event together.” He also added the event is in the works for next year and “the celebration will be even bigger and better next year!” We are happy to award this month’s High Five Award to Tom Larson. Thank you for taking the time to help make Stanley a great city!
