The Laclede County Hometown Heroes program for 2020 made its debut online Thursday morning.
Because of COVID-19, the virtual event on the Lebanon Area Foundation Facebook pages and Youtube took the place of the annual breakfast that is usually held to honor local volunteers.
Two Laclede County citizens and two nonprofit organizations were recognized for their contributions to the community.
The 2020 Hometown Heroes are:
Donna Mason – Veterans’ Advocate Hometown Hero
Working to honor and support area veterans, Donna Mason helps organize Veteran’s Day activities and recognitions, serves as President of the Veteran’s Memorial Board and promotes programs that benefit Laclede County veterans.
