Hometown Heroes recognized at dinner banquet

Though it seems improbable, this is the 48th year of the Hometown Heroes. Several members of the Maumee Garden Club have been acknowledged in the past not only for their work with the club but serving the city of Maumee with their volunteer work. This year, former Maumee City Schools Superintendent Todd Kramer is receiving the Outstanding Citizen award. I admire him for expanding the opportunities for all students in the Maumee system to be recognized for their variety of interests and talents. I believe this allows schools to be more inclusive for all its students not just a few. Also being acknowledged that evening at Gabe Barrow, Jeff Farthing, Jon Fiscus and Mark Irmen for the beautiful new Towpath Trail. The Bridge Award will be given to Jim Richardson, Maumee’s basketball coach, the River Award goes to the Maumee Senior Center and the Golden Apples awardees are Jamie Naragon, Amy Johnson and Michele Loboschefski. Congrats to all. The banquet will be held Thursday, March 2, at Arrowhead Park’s The Pinnacle. Tickets can be ordered through the Maumee Chamber website, maumeechamber.com.
