The second proclamation was awarded to Izzy and Pippa Hines for outstanding service in the community. 

Izzy and Pippa wrote over 50 letters to senior citizens who have not been able to see their grandchildren due to Covid restrictions. Their goal this summer is to write a letter every day, totaling 166 letters, and will expand their efforts to include children in hospitals in much need of cheer and kindness.
