Discover the Heart of Argyle: Celebrating Community Excellence
Nestled in history since 1871, Argyle owes its charm and progress to the unwavering dedication of its residents. Their selfless commitment, spanning generations, has shaped the vibrant town we cherish today.
In tribute to these exceptional individuals—past and present—the Argyle Town Council proudly introduces the Exceptional Citizen Service Recognition Program.
Criteria and Nomination Process:
To qualify for this recognition, the nominee must be an Argyle resident, or group located within the Town, and should display or meet two of the following criteria:
Strive to make a positive impact in the community
Enhance the Town of Argyle community and the lives of its citizens
Address or fulfill a community need or concern
Demonstrate a lasting impact on Argyle that benefits future generations
The Town Council diligently reviews all submissions quarterly, culminating in a special Mayoral Proclamation. Nominations remain valid for up to one year from the initial submission, allowing ample time for recognition.
Nominators are tasked with providing:
A comprehensive application
Detailed information about the nominee and their contributions
An explanation of how the nominee's efforts positively impact the community now and in the future
Supporting evidence such as photographs, videos, or personal testimonials
Please note that all application materials become property of the Town and may be used for promotional purposes or in various online endeavors.
The deserving recipient of the Exceptional Service Recognition will be honored with a special Proclamation from the Mayor and Council. Additionally, a dedicated tree will be planted in Argyle's Unity Park in their honor, adorned with a plaque commemorating their service for all to admire.
