Mayor Rick Chamber’s office has announced that the Random Act of Kindness event has been delayed from June to September this year. Dixie Lockridge will again be in charge of the awards celebration, which will be held on Sept. 16.
Be thinking of who might be a good nominee for this award. Last year’s recipient of the award was a group of Knox High School students who held a car wash. Bruce Klimek, a teacher of the moderately mentally handicapped class at the high school, nominated the students after they raised $200 and gave it to the class for a party and supplies.
Other winners included Jose Marquez in 2010, Jeff Messer, Sr., and the late Eric Corey in 2009.
