Heroes are all around us every day, like teachers who make learning fun for students and firefighters and police officers who risk their lives for our safety. Even a helpful neighbor who helps out in a pinch is a hero.
Starting now, we want you to nominate a Michiana resident who you know and consider to be a hero. Submit a photo (if you can) and explain why this person is such a hero in your life.
As we collect submissions, 95.3 MNC’s Mark McGill will choose one Hometown Hero a week and feature their story on Michiana’s Morning News. The chosen heroes will also be featured throughout the week on 95.3 MNC.
We’ll choose one winner a week for seven weeks. All Hometown Heroes will be invited to a breakfast awards ceremony from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Nov. 2 at Martin’s Super Market at S.R. 23 and Ironwood Drive. Each Hometown Hero will be able to bring up to four guests.
The Hometown Hero for the week of September 19 is Milton Foster:
Milton’s daughter, Rebecca, says he father served as a volunteer firefighter for Portage Township for more than 25 years. She says he also served his country with 2 tours as a Marine and encourages his family to work with Miller’s Vets to insure that our local veterans get everything they need.
