Lombard student recognized for community service
LOMBARD – At the June 20 Board of Trustees meeting, 8-year-old Julia Pate was awarded the village's Medal of Character Excellence for displaying strong character and a commitment to volunteering. Julia serves with an organization called First Things First, which provides baby supplies to families in need.
Julia received the medal from Trustee Dan Whittington (District 1) who serves as chairman of the board's Community Relations Committee.
Earlier this year, she helped organize a fundraiser for First Things First at the Walgreen's store at St. Charles Road and Elizabeth Street. She made posters, distributed fliers and encouraged shoppers to make donations to the organization.
