Outstanding Citizenship Award

PURPOSE

Throughout our Town’s history, volunteers have donated countless hours to improve the quality of life in Flower Mound. The success of any community is built upon the efforts of individuals committed to serving their community with the desire to make it a better place to live, work, and play.

The Outstanding Citizenship Award is designed to recognize each year:Citizenship-Award-Logo-Town of FM.jpg
