City of Lincoln & FieldHaven Honored in 2006
By FieldHaven Feline Center
The City of Lincoln was among the thirty-four communities selected as finalists and the only California winner of the coveted All-American Cities Award, the nation’s longest running and most prestigious civic recognition program, only award to ten cities nationwide by the National Civic League (NCL). The All-American City Award encourages and recognizes civic excellence and honors the communities in which citizens, government, business, and non-profit organizations demonstrate successful resolution of critical community issues.
FieldHaven Feline Rescue was among six non-profit organizations to have one of its volunteers selected as “Volunteer of the Year” in 2006 by the Lincoln Volunteer Center, a formally incorporate partnership of the City of Lincoln, Western Placer Unified School District, Heritage Church, and several community businesses.
FieldHaven, the youngest organization represented, received its first time ever honor with two organizations established in Lincoln in excess of twenty years, Ride to Walk (1985) and Lincoln Arts (1986), and three nationally established organizations with chapters in Lincoln (Kiwanis Club, Friends of the Library, and Economic Development Committee).
The six organizations recognized each illustrate a diversity of interest and the volunteers honored play a major role in making a huge difference in the community through their hard work, dedication, and giving spirit.
