Our Hometown Heroes!

5 Dec

On December 4, 2009, the Charleston-Huntington television station WSAZ NewsChannel 3 honored Sr. Brendan and also ABLE Families founder Sr. Janet Peterworth as Hometown Heroes.  We held a big surprise reception, with the TV crew present, at the Kermit Community Center.  Employees of the Mingo County Department of Health and Human Resources nominated the sisters for the honor. 

At the same event, the Mingo County Commissioners formally declared December 4 to be Sisters Day in Mingo County.  They expressed their appreciation for all the work of Srs. Brendan and Janet on behalf of people living in poverty in the county, and they made this appreciation tangible with twin gifts of $1,000 each for the two agencies.  

WSAZ NewsChannel3 will air the Hometown Heroes segment featuring the sisters on December 18, during their 5:30 PM news broadcast.  It will be repeated the following day, at 6 AM and 6 PM.
