The City of Manchester held its annual Awards and Recognitions banquet last night. Tony Broghammer was honored with the Citizen of the Year Award. Broghammer is retiring from the City Council after 12 years of service.
In addition to serving on the City Council, Broghammer has also been involved over the years in a number of other organizations in the community, including the Delaware County Cattlemen’s Association, FFA, 4-H, Extension Council and Advisory Board, and several city boards. He believes volunteering your time and serving your community is important.
Tim Egemo was honored by the City Parks and Rec Department as Coach of the Year. Egemo is credited with helping to start up the Northeast Iowa Youth Football League about ten years ago.
Egemo says he really enjoys working with the community’s young people.
And the Community Childcare Board was presented with the City’s Distinguished Service Award. City Manager Tim Vick says they’ve been through a lot in recent years… floodwaters forced them out of an old location and led them to renovate the old kindergarten building. They opened in their new location last December.
Fellow board members Vicki Ries and Rudi Hameister agree it’s a nice honor.
The City of Manchester has 114 volunteers that give their time serving on committees and boards, coaching teams and other various volunteer duties. If you’d like to get involved in some way, contact Manchester City Hall.
