The Henry Johnson Volunteer of the Year honor was awarded to Buster Wurm, right. As an 8-year-old Wurm decided he would clean his neighborhood, one street at a time. He has never veered from his dedication to his community, council members said. As an adult, Wurm remained committed by volunteering at local events, attending meetings and cleaning parks, "and yes, he continues to clean one street at a time. Buster Wurm exemplifies the definition of citizen through his unwavering dedication," the spokesman added. Also honored was Ss. Simon & Jude Catholic Community Church for 64 years in the community.
