Distinguished Citizens Dinner

On My Honor I will do My Best ....

First Aid, Emergency Preparedness, Citizenship ....

Life Scout Chris Shay learned and executed the lessons taught and in the process helped to save the life of his sister Kelly. Chris will be receiving the Heroism Award from the National Court of Honor. 

Come and learn about the Shay Family story, help us recognize Chris, and pay tribute to our First Responders. While 5 local fireman will be recognized as the 2020 Distinguished Citizens, we will recognize the entire 13 person team, and salute all emergency service personel in the CSRA.
