Hometown Hero Award Winner--
For Candace “Candy” Lundberg, volunteering at local non-profits has been her calling over the last several years.
She was a co-founder of the Mount Hope Sanctuary, a director at the Salvation Army and has been a part of the Prison Fellowship Angel Tree, plus the Le Leche League and many other causes.
Candy has been part of the community for over 42 years and is married to Dee, who was born and raised in McPherson. They have two children and five ...grandchildren, who also live in the community.
“Dee brought me here to meet and visit family 43 years ago and I instantly fell in love with McPherson,” Candy wrote. “This is a town full of love, commitment and caring for all its people.”
Because of her work in and around the McPherson community, Lundberg is recognized at The Citizens State Bank/Home State Bank Hometown Hero for this quarter.
“Candy’s infectious and amazing attitude is one you never forget,” stated Briana Lance, who nominated her for the award.
And, although she’s now “officially” retired, Candy is still very tuned in to the community.
“Something maybe not known,” she wrote, “I cruise Main once in a while just because of the special feeling this small town Americana still brings forth in me.”
