Blake O’Mara was honored for his community service at the Decatur County United Fund annual meeting held January 24, 2017 at MainSource Financial Group.

To be a volunteer, it takes…
Generosity, a willingness to give your time to others
Understanding, because their lives might be very different from your own
Empathy, an ability to put your-self in someone else’s shoes and feel what they must feel
Compassion, to truly care about making someone else’s life better
Patience, because the process doesn’t always go as smoothly as it might
Dedication, to stick with the project and see it through
This year’s volunteer is an individual that has demonstrated all of these things and much more.

Blake O’Mara is a dedicated community member and very deserving to be awarded the Decatur County United Fund 2016 Volunteer of the Year Award.
