We began awarding the Starfish award to promote community minded citizens in our Hale Area.

This award originated from the story of a number of starfish who had washed ashore after a storm. One person was out on the beach throwing starfish back into the water, when another individual came up to ask him why he bothered throwing the starfish back. There were so many, he argued, that it could not possibly make a difference. The reply was, "It made a difference to one." 

We want to recognize the people who makes a difference in our community, no matter how small their contribution may seem.

Ryan Richardson of Kocher's Market is the latest award recipient. He was nominated for always displaying friendly exceptional customer service and outgoing personality to meet the customers needs. To present this award to Ryan, is Cheryl McDonell of the Hale Area Association.
