City Coast Guard Committee Seeks Nominations for the Guardian Award

The City of Traverse City Coast Guard Committee proudly announces the call for nominations for its Guardian Award. Established to recognize outstanding contributions to the community by individuals, families, or entire Coast Guard families active at Air Station Traverse City, this
award celebrates the epitome of selfless service and dedication. 

"We are thrilled to open nominations for the Guardian Award, a beacon of gratitude for those in our Coast Guard community who go above and beyond for Traverse City," remarked Polly Cairns, City Assessor and Coast Guard Committee Chairperson. "This award underscores not
only their unwavering commitment to safeguarding our shores but also their remarkable efforts in enhancing the fabric of our beloved community."

The Coast Guard is a unique branch of the Military responsible for an array of maritime duties, from ensuring safe and lawful commerce to performing rescue missions in severe conditions. The Coast Guard Committee serves in an advisory capacity to the City Commission to make
recommendations on matters relating to the operation, development, and planning of the United States Coast Guard services, facilities, and programs within the City of Traverse City. The City of Traverse City has been a designated Coast Guard City since 2010.

Nominations are due by March 31, 2024. The honoree(s) will be celebrated at a reception in spring 2024.
