A neighborhood block club, residents and a new safe baby program were honored during last night’s 6th District town hall meeting by Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs for making the district a great place in which to live, and each was presented with a 2016 Dr. James G. White 6th District Difference Makers Award.

Alderwoman Coggs, who presented the awards during the meeting (held in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Library, 310 W. Locust St.), said selfless and dedicated work to improve the district, neighborhoods and the community is truly worthy of recognition and thanks. “It takes a certain amount of love and respect for one’s community and neighbors to tirelessly do positive things without regard for what personal reward or gain may come of it,” she said.

“That selfless attitude and generosity of spirit and energy is what the Difference Makers Award is all about, as it truly embodies the beliefs and actions of the late Dr. James G. White,” Alderwoman Coggs said.
