The Chapel Hill Historical Society is seeking nominations for its annual Community Treasures awards. These awards recognize long-time residents of Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Orange County whose kind hearts and good deeds have made our communities better places for all. A list of past awardees can be found on the historical society’s website (click here) and include active volunteers, dedicated professionals, committed public servants, and individuals who work quietly behind the scenes to better our community and the lives of our residents.

- Have been a resident of the Chapel Hill/Carrboro/Orange County communities and been involved in local community service for at least 20 years.
- Be at least 75 years of age.
