"My Town and Yours" Thoughts and Observations of Mark Lange

The City of Vincennes has announce the Spirit of 76 Award winner for this year. It's Jerry Coonrad. A lot of us will nod our heads in approval at the award. Jerry is a deserving winner. There will be a reception for Jerry at the Riverfront Pavillion after the 4th of July Parade next week. While it makes sense that the Spirit of 76 Winner is announced just before the 4th of July and honored during the holiday, I wonder if the deserving winner gets a little lost in the activities surrounding one of our biggest family holidays.
There won't be a suggestion about where to move the award, just some wondering. When you see Jerry in the parade or walking around before the fireworks give him a high five and tell him thanks for helping make Knox County a good place to live. He deserves it.
