Nominate a military family for recognition at Celebrate Madison

MADISON – Do you know a military family you would like to be recognized for their service and contributions to the community? Nominations are now open for military families to be recognized at Celebrate Madison on Thursday, Aug. 17.

Celebrate Madison is the State of the City address delivered by the mayor to update the community on the progress of the past year and the vision for the future. The state of the city address is paired with community fun and family-friendly activities at Toyota Field. Part of the festivities this year will include the recognition of three military families.

Signalink has partnered with the Madison Chamber of Commerce and the City of Madison to sponsor the three families.

Signalink owners Steve and Alice Lessman, who are veterans themselves, said they wanted to show their and the community’s appreciation for the hard work and sacrifices of military families. “We are proud to be the Military Family Sponsor for Celebrate Madison,” they said. “As veterans, Steve and I have committed ourselves to honoring the men and women who serve our country. Being able to offer our support in any way that highlights their selfless contributions is truly our pleasure.”

Mayor Paul Finley acknowledged the great influence military families have had on Madison, “The Madison community is built upon the regional military influence in our area. We thank our Veterans, Active Duty service men and women, and the Gold Star families for their sacrifice. We also thank Signalink for their sponsorship of the Celebrate Madison event, making this recognition possible. It is an honor for these military families, who have lived in many cities across the world, to call Madison home.”

Eligible families may be active duty, retired, or a Gold Star Family that live within the Madison city limits. The families selected will be recognized on the field and presented with a special plaque in the opening ceremonies of the event. Nominations can be submitted until Monday, July 31, by filling out a form on the Madison Chamber of Commerce website, www.madisonalchamber.com.

Celebrate Madison is hosted by the Madison Chamber of Commerce with the support of presenting sponsor Meta, the City of Madison, and a committee of local businesses. It is free to all Madison residents, and gates open at 6 pm.
