The 2021 Milton Community Champion Award Committee was honored to recognize Arnie Parot as this year’s Milton Community Champion!
At Milton's National Night Out on Tuesday, August 3 the Committee presented the Award to Arnie and read the following:
"The Town of Milton’s Community Champion Award honors community members who, through their volunteer efforts, have significantly enhanced our community with their commitment, leadership, and service to others. This year’s Community Champion Award is being presented to Arnie Parot.
Arnie Parot’s nomination very eloquently expressed immense gratitude for the years of service Arnie has provided to our community. From delivering donations to the Milton Family Community Center, to coordinating the Toys For Kids drives during the holidays, to dressing up as Santa to bring the community holiday cheer, Arnie has been a familiar and welcome face to many for many years.
When you imagine a pillar of any community, you think of someone who is a constant support - always there, behind the scenes and ready to lend a helping hand at all times. A quote from Arnie’s nomination explains this in more detail: “It is extremely difficult to explain how Arnie’s work contributes to a specific part of the MFCC or the Milton community because he is everywhere we need him to be whenever we need him to be there”.
The purpose of this award is to make sure neighbors like Arnie receive recognition for their tireless commitment to making sure our community continues to thrive. Arnie’s nomination demonstrates that Arnie has done so much because he never wants anyone to miss out simply because no one is there to help. He is a “dream volunteer”, and our community is grateful beyond measure for Arnie."
