Every part, every neighborhood of our Borough has its heroes—people who volunteer or work quietly to improve the lives of others. These are not famous politicians or paid professionals. These are ordinary people doing extraordinary work.
One of Dianne Herrin’s goals as Mayor is to recognize and help promote the work of such community heroes so we can lift each other up – and make progress together.
Visitors to this webpage could nominate someone from their neighborhood or community organization for recognition as a Community Hero. We applauded some of these heroes at a fundraising event at the Charles A. Melton Center on Saturday October 21, 2017. Read about them in this Daily Local News article.
