Kuna Grange honors local citizens

The Kuna Grange last night held its annual ceremony to recognize local citizens who contribute to the well-being of the Kuna community.
This year, award recipients include: Educator of the Year, Angela Hemingway; Policeman of the Year, Weston Bunnell; Fireman of the Year, Joe Link; and Citizen of the Year, Richard Cardoza.
Back in 2007, Nicola and I were surprised and honored to receive the citizen of the year award. It's a great honor from a great local organization.
Nationally, and as declared by Idaho Lt. Gov. Brad Little in a recent proclamation, April has been recognized as Grange Month. In celebration, annual awards are bestowed upon citizens by the Kuna Grange, to honor those who have been identified as having made a significant contribution to the Kuna community.
Established in 1867, The National Grange is the oldest agricultural and rural community service organization.
