–Nominations are being sought for the Heritage Award which is given annually to an area resident during Founders Day. Susan Bangert is on the Heritage Award committee and she says they are looking for people who have selflessly served Kossuth County.
The Heritage Award was established in 2004 as a way to recognize individuals for their commitment and dedication to Algona and the surrounding area. Bangert says you can pick up a nomination form at the Algona Chamber of Commerce office or you can find one on the Chambers website.
Nominations need to be turned in by May 1st as the award will be presented on the Friday of Founders Day weekend. Last year’s recipient was long-time State Representative Dolores Mertz.
