  • Newmarket presents Honorary Citizen Award to First Responders, Front Line and Essential Workers

    Created: Friday, October 09, 2020

    ​On October 9, the Town of Newmarket recognized its first responders, front line and essential workers in Newmarket with the Honorary Citizen Award.

    A socially-distanced small ceremony took place at Fairy Lake Park to recognize representatives from each respective area. A permanent plaque was also unveiled to forever honour all first responders, front-line and essential workers for their dedication to keeping our community safe every day and especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The Newmarket Honorary Citizen Award appointment is presented in recognition of an individual / group for their outstanding service and commitment to the Town of Newmarket.

    The Honorary Citizen Award is a nomination process in which Mayor and Members of Newmarket Council make appointments through a formal resolution. Awards are not given out every year and the last time an award was handed out was in 2017.

    A presentation will follow the decision to award an individual/group of the Honorary Citizen designation. The unveiling of a plaque will permanently mark the Honorary Citizen’s achievements at the monument at Fairy Lake Park.
