Now is the time to think of your favorite Decatur Hometown Hero – that person who works hard, often behind the scenes, to make our community a better place to live and work. Nominate your choice for recognition as a 2012 Hometown Hero. Nominations will be accepted until Sept. 14.
Decatur launched its Hometown Heroes recognition and celebration in the summer of 1996 at the close of the Hometown to the World Festival during the Olympics. Each year since 1996, Decatur has recognized and celebrated a new group of Hometown Heroes during the Decatur Business Association’s Holiday Meeting in December.
Applications are judged by a panel of professionals who work with volunteers throughout the state of Georgia and who do not know the nominees. Nomination forms are available at http://www.decaturga.com or at City Hall, 509 N. McDonough St., second floor, Community and Economic Development department. You may also write an essay describing your Hometown Hero and what he/she has contributed to the Decatur community.
