BEA CHRISTY CRITERIA
Bea Christy was a dedicated member of the Eastside Neighborhood Organization (ENO) for more than ten years. She worked with other organizations to make the neighborhood and community a better place to live. She was the kind of individual who volunteered to do the “unglamorous” tasks, who worked quietly and diligently and behind the scenes, who never sought recognition for her efforts.
She was a good neighbor in her immediate neighborhood, welcoming new people, planting flowers in the churchyard across the street from her house, taking elderly folks to the doctor, noticing where the sidewalk needed repairs. Bea was also active in ENO, which covered a large geographic area. She helped edit and deliver the ENO neighborhood newspaper, made soup for the annual spring fund-raiser, helped plant flowers in the community bed on Michigan Avenue, and helped in countless other ways.
Bea was also an active member of her church, volunteered with Radio Talking Book, and helped initiate and continued volunteering with the Lansing area CROP walk. She made these contributions in addition to being a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother.
This award honors the legacy of service demonstrated by Bea Christy.

EXAMPLE OF NOMINATION WRITEUP
The person whom we wish to nominate deserves this honor because of the numerous contributions to our community.
In an area of our neighborhood that was used as a public dump, prostitute hangout, and drug infested site, this citizen took the initiative to change the appearance of the unsafe and unsightly part of our neighborhood. The nominee began by removing all the couches, trash, tires, and large appliances that were dumped. Next they undertook the task of the removal of weeds, hazardous trees and re-graded the land. This notable individual then planted trees and sowed grass seed to give the area its now park like appearance. This area, which was once nothing but an eyesore and dangerous spot, is now a beautiful; safe play site and meeting place for our community.
In addition to this outstanding display of community dedication, our nominee has continually contributed time and their skills to the neighborhood. This person has and continues to restore broken bicycles, which are not only used for community recreational activities, but also have been donated with a kind heart to children who do not have and can not afford bicycles. This is not the only contribution this individual makes to our neighborhood, they have also acted as the baseball coach, and continuing to pinch-hit for the current coach when ever it is desired. This outstanding individual is always there with an open hand or heart whenever someone is in need.
