A Salute to Hometown Heroes

Hometown Heroes Title Card

In an era where sports stars and Hollywood celebrities routinely flash and trash the hero label, we'd like to recognize the real-life heroes in our hometowns - the firefighters, police and rescue workers (volunteers especially!).

In honor of all hometown heroes, we'd like to invite you to a FREE event at The Grand Opera House, 100 High St., Oshkosh, Wisconsin for A Salute to Hometown Heroes.

Please join us for the premiere of Airboat Rescue 1: When the Ice Breaks, a short documentary about a Town of Poygan, Wisconsin family, who've converted a personal tragedy into three decades of selfless community service as ice rescuers.

Share your hero stories with us at the My Hometown Hero booth.

See Airboat Rescue 1 and its operators up close.

Those of you who are the unsung heroes among us, please represent your department and be recognized as hometown heroes.

For more information, please contact UW Oshkosh journalism lecturer and Airboat Rescue 1 director Grace Lim at:
