Tribute to Heroes
It was a phone call Barry Schrader wasn't expecting.
"It was a total surprise when Ging Smith called me," Schrader said with a laugh. "I thought only old-timers who lived here all their lives were considered for this."
Schrader, a longtime DeKalb resident, is one of five local people who are being honored at the 11th annual DeKalb County Tribute to Heroes sponsored by the Boy Scouts of America Three Fires Council. The celebration will begin at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 3 at Kishwaukee College.
Other honorees are Evelina Cichy, Denise Curran, Michael Flora and Dave Lindgren.
According to Three Fires Council District Executive Zack Knoch, a 14-person committee selects the honorees from a list of nominated candidates who "have given unselfishly of themselves to the community."
