When a person works hard to do a good job, they are said to be a hard worker. When a person adds a few extra hours of volunteer work to aid the community in which they live, they are said to be good citizens. But here in St. Augustine, when a person not only does a good job, not only gives a little extra work to the community, but also volunteers for tasks to improve our community and improve the Easter Festival, they deserve to be knighted. This tradition started when it was decided that there were members of our community that needed to be singled out to be thanked for all extra hours they put in promoting St. Augustine and its rich history. Please utilize the form below and nominate individuals that you feel are deserving this recognition. Nominations must be received by March 31, 2017. You may print the form by clicking on the .pdf form below filling it out and emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to St. Augustine Easter Week Festival, P.O. Box 3631, St. Augustine, FL 32084. Thank you for participating.
