Celebrating OUR Citizens is a new program created by Town Planner, in conjunction with Mayor Larry Antoskiewicz and Tracy Marx, Realtor®, Howard Hanna Real Estate Services, and is designed to raise awareness of all the good that is happening right here in North Royalton. Each month we will seek nominations for citizens, businesses and organizations who have excelled, contributed or gone above and beyond to bring benefit and recognition to our community. To help build a sense of belonging to our community, it is important to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments and good deeds happening all around us. Candidates may include: military personnel returning from active service, police or fire going above and beyond, a retirement with many years of service to the community, the athletic or academic performance of students, health care workers who go above and beyond, teachers and others retiring with many years of service, business owners or organizations that made a generous service or financial contribution to the community.

Each month during 2022, nominations will be sought via social media and other digital communications, and each month’s winner will be announced. All nominees will remain eligible for consideration throughout the year. The winner each month will receive the recognition they deserve as well as a $50 gift card to a North Royalton business, courtesy of Tracy Marx, Howard Hanna Realtor. A new winner will be announced every month this year. 2022 is a time to celebrate our citizens. This program is a combined effort of Mayor Larry Antoskiewicz, the Town Planner and Tracy Marx, Realtor®, Howard Hanna Real Estate Services. Thanks for all you do here in North Royalton!
