Selfless acts deserving of recognition.

Rotary Club of Langley Central has put the call out for women who selflessly give of their time and talents.

A luncheon celebration of International Women’s Day will be held at Newlands Golf and Country Club on March 5, said organizer Stew McIvor.

This annual event will honour three local women who volunteer to improve the lives of those less fortunate with the 2016 Women of Distinction awards.

“These are the unsung heroes of Langley,” said McIvor. “People that do wonderful things in the community.”

Those who know a woman who volunteers to make the lives of others better can submit a nomination to the Rotary committee.

To be considered, these women: are unpaid volunteers, live in Langley, have been in their volunteer position for a minimum of two years, and show a drive to make things better while being personally involved in the community.

Tickets for the event are $45 and the keynote speaker will be news anchor Tamara Taggart, noted McIvor.

For more information, visit www.internationalwomensday.ca or contact McIvor at arbutusdesign@shaw.ca or at 604-828-4023. Deadline for nominations is Jan. 31.
