Difference Makers to be recognized at 6th District town hall meeting
Residents will also have the opportunity to celebrate the neighbors that have helped make the district a great place to live.
Residents at Wednesday’s 6th District town hall meeting will not only be able to interact with city officials including Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs, but they will also have the opportunity to celebrate the neighbors that have helped make the district a great place to live as Alderwoman Coggs announces the recipients of the 2013 Dr. James G. White 6th District Difference Makers Awards.
The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, January 29 at 5:30 p.m. in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Library, 310 W. Locust St. Four Difference Maker Awards will be presented to 6th District residents, one to a community organization and one to a block club, all of which have contributed to making their neighborhood a better place.
“The recipients of this year’s awards have all worked tirelessly for the betterment of their community, without thought for recognition or reward,” Alderwoman Coggs said. “This is a great chance to demonstrate the gratitude they so richly deserve.”
Alderwoman Coggs established the Dr. James G. White 6th District Difference Makers Awards to recognize those residents and organizations that work diligently to improve and strengthen the quality of life for themselves, their neighborhood and the City of Milwaukee. Dr. White was a resident of the 6th District who served as a county supervisor and the regional vice president of WestCare Wisconsin Harambee Community Center, facilitating countless neighborhood projects and programs and always using his gifts, talents and knowledge to improve and empower his community.
