“Volunteers are the lifeblood of our community and play an integral role in so many of our community organisations,” Cr Koranski said.

“These awards are a fantastic opportunity to recognise and reward those who give up their time to help make our city an even better place.”

Previous winners of the Frank Lenz Memorial Award have included passionate football administrator Abdul Samim Khan, tireless community volunteer Peter Harrison-Kyte and dedicated cat rescuer Deborah Bright.

The Rotary Club of Beenleigh, the Muslim Charitable Foundation and the Rochedale Springwood Meals on Wheels are previous recipients of the Davida Steele Memorial Award.

Rotary Club of Beenleigh President Janee Hong said it was wonderful to see the club recognised for its efforts in last year’s Logan Volunteer Awards.

“We are so proud to be the local Service Club recognised for the work we do in our community,” Ms Hong said.

“Our introduction to our meetings always starts with ‘This award-winning Club…’, and we believe this recognition has helped with grant applications and attracting sponsors and corporate partners.”

Nominees must be Logan residents or organisations and must be aware they are being nominated.

Nominations can be made on the Logan City Council website. Nominations close at midnight on Monday, April 10.

Winners will be announced at the Logan Volunteer Thank You Breakfast on Saturday May 13.
