Claremont's community heroes for the Fair

It's that time of year again. The Los Angeles County Fair opens its doors Saturday, September 4. Claremont Day at the fair will be on Thursday, September 23, where residents can get a discounted entrance to the fair.

Fair officials have announced Claremont's community heroes to be honored this year. Junior hero Langston Coleman-Brown, a Claremont High School student, has contributed more than 1,300 hours of volunteer service in the past two years for the city’s Human Services Department.

Adult Hero Rosemary Henderson is also a very active volunteer. She is involved with many senior issues and serves on the Claremont Committee on Aging, co-chaired the development and implementation of the Postal Alert Program, participated in the development of the Senior Master Plan for Claremont, is a member of the Senior Finance Committee and chairs the Claremont Senior Foundation.

Chuck Farritor is being honored with the senior Community Hero award for his many years of community service. Farritor served on the board for Pomona Valley Workshop, which helped children with special needs. Active in Democratic politics, Farritor served as president of the Claremont Democractic Club. Farritor also volunteered with the Claremont Police Department in the citizen’s patrol program.
