ALBION – Orleans Hub will have our annual awards presentation today for our choices of the “outstanding citizens” for 2018.

We’ll be presenting certificates and thanking people who stepped up in a big way last year to make the community a better place to live.

We’ll be recognizing Tami Ashton, Mark Bennett Sr., Penny Cole, Michael Hungerford, Jak Kohmann, Melissa Ostrom, Leonel Rosario, Tony and Laura Sidari, Brett Sobieraski and Chris Wilson.

This event starts at 6:30 p.m. and is at Hoag Library in Albion. The public is welcome to attend, although space is limited. We’ll likely post a video of the awards presentation on YouTube.

Every year since the Orleans Hub started in 2013 we’ve honored a group of people who made Orleans County better in the past year.

In Orleans County, we are fortunate to have many people dedicated to good works and improving the community. Sometimes they react in the spur of the moment, saving another person’s life. Sometimes it’s years of effort before they see the fruit of their labors. And, sometimes after suffering a painful personal tragedy, they will step forward to help others.
