Information about the Outstanding Citizen program:
All of us have had the opportunity to be associated with individuals from Greenbelt who have distinguished themselves for their outstanding volunteer service to our community. Rarely do these people receive the recognition they deserve.
Every year, Greenbelt’s Outstanding Citizen Selection Committee chooses a volunteer to honor at the Opening Ceremonies of Greenbelt’s annual Labor Day Festival. We strive to make this a memorable event for the honoree. State and local officials personally bestow congratulatory citations and proclamations. In addition to receiving special gifts, the honoree’s name is added to a permanent plaque located in the Community Center, and the honoree serves as the Grand Marshal for the Labor Day Parade.
