I’m a strong believer in recognizing those who have made significant contributions to their city or town, their state, their country, their world, or to others. You can toss in about anything else they have a major influence on.
Each day, the names and efforts of those who qualify for that praise appear online or in print (or both). These are outstanding efforts and people who make a difference.
So here’s a salute, and a few examples.
A century of service
CHICKASHA — For 100 years, the Grady County Oklahoma Home and Community Education group, Rural Neighbors, has made a significant contribution to its area and beyond.
The group recently was joined by their supporters in celebrating service to the community and perseverance of home values.
The Chickasha Express-Star described the setting and the event, which featured some history, some entertainment, and lots of accolades.
Susan Routh spoke about “Celebrating the Past, Looking to the Future.”
The newspaper reported that OHCE “started with projects such as making soap, dress forms, cheese and learning to cook with a pressure cooker. Quilting is an ongoing project which remains as significant today as it was when OHCE was formed.”
