Several years ago the City of Carver created a community service award designed to recognize the time, support, service, and dedication that individuals and organizations have given unselfishly to our community. In 2019, the City Council renamed the award program after the late Mayor, Greg Osterdyk, in recognition of his many years of service and dedication shared with the community.
This award is meant to recognize the time, support, service, and dedication that individuals and organizations have given unselfishly to the City of Carver. It is important to acknowledge the hard work of citizens that truly make a difference in our community.
Community service can include volunteering time, effort, expertise, or other resources. All citizens, organizations, and businesses within Carver are eligible. If you know of a person, business, or organization that deserves a Carver Community Service Award, please fill out a Nomination Form (PDF). Nomination forms can also be picked up at City Hall.
Nominations are accepted until November 15 of each year, with nominations reviewed by the Mayor, one City Council Member, and staff. The Greg Osterdyk Community Service Award winners will receive a plaque and be recognized in City publications for their achievement.
