VIA seeking nominations for Seventh Annual Citizenship Award  

Village Improvement Association

REHOBOTH BEACH – In 2009, the Village Improvement Association (VIA) members established a Citizenship Award as we celebrated 100 years of community service. The purpose of the VIA Citizenship Award is to honor our founders who had the foresight to establish an organization for women of lasting value to the community.  They were dedicated to the improvement the intellectual culture, educational advancement and moral development of VIA members; and to promoting charitable and civic work in Rehoboth Beach and surrounding areas. We believe it is important to continue the tradition established by our founders and to honor women who embody their vision of more than a century ago.


Do you know a dedicated woman who is committed to serving our community?  The VIA Citizenship Award is open to all women, 18 years or older, living in the Cape Henlopen School District.  She can be a professional and/or volunteer who has made an outstanding contribution of lasting value in our community which personifies the ideas established by our founders.  A committee of past presidents will make the selection and the Citizenship Award will be presented at our Annual Luncheon in May.


The deadline for all nominations to be submitted is Friday, March 20, 2015.   Please mail all prospective nominations with examples of their contributions to the following:
