Nominations for Outstanding Maryland Volunteers Due June 2

The Governor's Office on Service and Volunteerism is currently accepting nominations for the 2017 Governor's Service Awards. In its 34th year, the Governor's Service Awards honor individuals and groups for exemplary service and contributions to Maryland's communities.

New categories this year are Emerging Leader, focused on volunteers 18 to 30 years old, and Member of the Board.

Nominations must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Friday, June 2, 2017. A panel of community leaders, volunteers, and Governor's Office on Service and Volunteerism staff will review the nominations, which will be scored and ranked based on the eligibility criteria listed in the nomination form. Each recipient will be notified of selection near the end of summer and invited to an awards ceremony in the fall. To submit a nomination or to learn more, visit

I'd nominate Dick A. Hoppes but he never volunteers unless it involves free food. Why are there so many "photo not available" for our paid firemen on the official website? Don't they have MD issued driver's licenses? Why can't they provide a photo? What are they hiding from?
