Volunteer & Senior Recognition Awards
Volunteers and Seniors in our community are valued and important to Woodlands County.
These awards recognize deserving individuals throughout the County who have volunteered above and beyond the call of duty, either for their community or the County as a whole.
To celebrate the contributions these special members of our community make, Woodlands County holds special events alternating each year to recognize them and all they do.
Watch this page and Woodlands County's Facebook page for announcements on events.
