The Community Hero Award was presented to John Tobin. “Anyone that does anything to help children is a HERO to me.” -John McNerney, City of Cortland Youth Bureau Director, describing what the word Hero means to him. He continued, “There is no greater Hero in Cortland than John Tobin when it comes to supporting kids and childhood development.”

One of John’s long time friends added, “John gives personally not only of his time but his resources. He purchases equipment such as shoes, gloves, etc. to help those kids who might otherwise not be able to participate without the required equipment.”- Joe Burns
