MARBLE HILL, MO (KFVS) - Hometown Hero honors for a Marble Hill, Mo. woman.
Bard Mayfield received the Hometown Hero award from Modern Woodmen, which she received earlier this year.
Along with the nomination, Barb was able to donate a check for 100 dollars to a charity of her choice – which was St Jude's Children's Hospital.
Barb is active in her community of Marble Hill, Mo. helping raise money for VFW Post 5900.
Her husband, Larry, is a veteran of the Vietnam War. They have been married for 52 years.
Larry was called to duty just a couple of days after their wedding.
Besides helping with the VFW, Barb enjoys spending time with residents of the local nursing home.
And she loves giving hugs to everyone.
