Prior to the Council Meeting on Tuesday, September 21, City of Champaign Fire and Police will honor 18 community-minded people. Over the past 18 months, as twelve separate emergency situations unfolded before their eyes, these community helpers and heroes have provided exemplary aid to Champaign police officers and firefighters.
A cookie and punch reception will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 6:55 p.m. in the City Building atrium. Council Members, department heads, and nominating police and fire officers are encouraged to be on hand to personally thank the 2010 Heroes and Helping Hands recipients at the reception. Honorees will be recognized at 7:00 p.m. at the start of the Council Meeting.
