“I have been impressed with the urgency of doing.
Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
Being willing is not enough; we must do.”
—Leonardo da Vinci

Welcome to the tenth edition of our annual salute to local people who make a difference. This year, like every other, we feature people from all different walks of life. They are philanthropists, caregivers, role models and visionaries. All share one common thread: They have heard a call to action, and responded with quiet determination, passion and persistence. We are fortunate to have them among us.
