McArthurs named Vernon’s citizens of the year
The Citizen of the Year award was presented to Charles and Mamie McArthur during the 108th annual Chamber of Commerce banquet on Thursday night, held at Wilbarger Auditorium.
Chamber vice president Chris Dunson presented the award. “This award goes out to a group, person or persons that have made a great impact on the community of Vernon Texas as a whole. This year’s Citizen of the Year has done just that. I will now read one statement of the many that nominated the recipient this year. ‘This couple selflessly donates time and resources at the New Visions Booker T Washington gym. They feed kids out of the goodness of their heart, never asking for anything in return. They provide a FREE thanksgiving meal to anyone who needs/wants it. These are some of the most giving and caring people I have ever met’,” Dunson said. “It is my pleasure to introduce to you the 2018 Citizens of the Year for Vernon Texas Charles and Mamie McArthur.”
