Search is on for America’s top 100 ‘Hometown Heroes’
Program honors extraordinary public service volunteers
The second annual Small Town America Civic Volunteer Award program was launched last month nationwide in counties with populations of less than 25,000. The country’s top 100 small-town public service volunteers will again be recognized and honored for their outstanding service, with the top three winning cash awards for their communities.
Details of the awards program, as well as the nomination form, can be found at www.civicvolunteer.com. The nomination period will run through Oct. 15.
