Each September, the nation recognizes prostate cancer awareness month to help defeat the third leading cause of cancer deaths among men. An estimated 29,430 husbands, sons, brothers, fathers, and grandfathers will lose their lives to prostate cancer in 2018.

An Ohio resident has been hard at work to ensure that these proclamations are renewed annually. Linda Hoetger has spoken with local leaders to remind communities of the pain and suffering of prostate cancer. As a result, Mayors, Legislators, City Council Members, and Town/Village managers and County Commissioners will issue a proclamation or resolution declaring September prostate cancer awareness month.

 Mayor Rich Harman of the Village of Woodville, Ohio. Has been a huge supporter in  raising awareness for prostate cancer. For the past two years he has written a Proclamation  for prostate cancer awareness month. I asked along with the Proclamation request to light a Landmark Blue. He again  honored my request and turned the flag poles Blue. Last year he placed Blue ribbons in the Village. 

On Saturday, February 18th he entered this car that he made for the Pinewood Derby. After the Derby he sent it to me. And extra Special gift from  an extra Special Mayor!
