We look forward to showing our thanks for their dedication to serving."

The ‘Cats and Community Resource FCU are encouraging fans to nominate personnel from military, law enforcement, firefighter/EMS agencies, non-profit organizations, as well as teachers, volunteers, children and everyday people that have helped make the Capital Region a better place to live.

“We are excited to partner with Community Resource Federal Credit Union to recognize the efforts of nine individuals to make the Capital Region a better place to live,” said ValleyCats General Manager Matt Callahan. “This is a great opportunity to celebrate their positive impact in our community.”
