I have seen all of the Hometown Hero presentations since the first one in 1996 and everytime I get chills.  We have now honored 205 people who have given extraordinary amounts of time and effort to make our community a better place to live, work, and play.  And that is just the tip of the iceberg.

These are folks who don’t necessarily receive accolades and recognition for their efforts – they do it quietly and behind the scenes and we benefit enormously.  This year the City Commission presented 18 Hometown Hero medals and you can read their profiles on Decatur’s webpage.

In the meantime, check out their photo with the City Commissioners at the award ceremony and see if you can pick out them out:  Ann Berg, Carl Black, Erin Braden, Herb Chereck, Mike Curtice, Laura Deming, Jim & Matthew Dickson, Scott Drake, Ron & Kathleen Everett, Spencer Johnson, Chuck & Charlie Lewis, Nonie Ravenberg, Rhett Rhame, Jerry G. White, and Janie Yorker. 

Way to go Hometown Heroes – you rock!
