Nominations Open for Jim DeWolfe Community Spirit Award

Each year, the prize celebrates a current or former long-time Riverview resident and/or business owner who has made an outstanding contribution to our community. Award winners help shape our community in many ways, including community engagement, volunteerism, and philanthropy.

Created in 2013, the award was named for Jim DeWolfe, a long-time resident whose generous contributions and volunteer efforts in Riverview stretched over six decades. Jim DeWolfe devoted his life to volunteerism, leadership and community growth until he passed away in 2021 at the age of 93. He is remembered and honoured as an inspiring example of how a single person can impact an entire community.

“There are many people in town that are deserving of this award - Riverview has some of the most dedicated and giving residents around. Please consider nominating someone you know who has given freely of their time and positively impacted our community,” said Mayor Andrew J. LeBlanc.

Nominations for this year's Jim DeWolfe Community Spirit Award will be accepted until 4:30 p.m. Friday, March 17, 2023. An independent committee will review and select the recipient that best fits the award's criteria. Riverview Mayor Andrew J. Leblanc will announce the 2023 recipient at the Recognizing Riverview Awards Gala on Thursday, April 20.
