Public is Encouraged to Submit Nominations for 2022 La Cañadan of the Year

The Kiwanis Club of La Cañada announced that nominations are now open for La Cañadan of the Year. The general public is invited to submit the name of an individual, or a couple, who has provided exemplary service to the La Cañada Flintridge and foothill neighborhoods. For over 70 years, the award has been presented to such recipients as Gil Smith, Dr. William Pickering and, most recently, Michael Davitt, to name a few.

La Cañadan of the Year Nominating Committee Chairperson Terry Piasky said, “We encourage you to submit a nomination so we may recognize the amazing service done by volunteers in our community. It’s a great opportunity to honor an individual or couple who have stepped up to make a difference.”

The deadline to submit a nomination is Tuesday, Feb. 28. A noontime luncheon celebration will be announced with the final date based on the recipient’s availability.

Nomination forms may be picked up at the La Cañada Flintridge City Hall. The forms may also be downloaded by visiting the website and clicking on the “La Cañadan of the Year” tab. Completed forms must be submitted by email to or mailed to Kiwanis Club of La Cañada – La Cañadan of the Year, c/o Terry Piasky, P.O. Box 33, La Cañada Flintridge, CA 91012.
