The character of a community is a reflection of the people that live and work there. Olney is such a special place because it is filled with so many people who care about Olney and are willing to “get involved” and give something back to the community, each in their own way.
The Greater Olney Civic Association (GOCA) wants to recognize individuals including a youth (Grades K-12), businesses, and organizations the community has identified as having made a notable contribution to the greater Olney community during 2013. Those recognized make contributions through working with youngsters, assisting senior citizens, performing voluntary civic work, improving our schools and educational facilities, making resources available for community endeavors, etc. GOCA looks for nominees who have made a noteworthy effort as a volunteer(s) or who have gone beyond the requirements of their jobs to enhance the quality of life in our community.
The following awards will be presented:
Howard J. Garber Memorial
Citizen of the Year Award
Contribution to Community Award
Youth Contribution to Community Award
Ron Berger Olney Heritage Award
GOCA Worker of the Year Award

Completed forms can be (1) mailed to Matt Zaborsky Co-Chair, 2013 GOCA Awards Committee, 5224 Continental Dr, Rockville, MD 20853 or emailed to email@example.com (2) given to any GOCA officer or (3) brought to a GOCA meeting (2nd Tuesday of each month at Buffington RE/MAX Office Building, 7:30 pm).
