Every year the Manitowoc Fire Department and Noon Rotary honors two people who have assisted the Department in one way or another. The recipients of the Firefighter and Citizen of the Year were given their awards last week Thursday in a ceremony that Fire Chief Todd Balser called a great way to celebrate the two individuals. Adam Thiel was named firefighter of the year.
The Citizen of the Year Award was granted to the Store Manager of the St. Vincent De Paul Society, Maria Maran.
Chief Blaser also said that he is very impressed with the Manitowoc Community as a whole, and how they are eager and willing to help those in need.
