It's time to meet the 2008 great brooksvillian
The city of Brooksville will host a special recognition day Dec. 13 for Dr. Paul Farmer, the city's 2008 Great Brooksvillian. Volunteers and sponsors are needed for the events that are scheduled, including the annual Brooksville Kiwanis Christmas Parade, which will have a special float honoring Farmer, the city's Great Brooksvillian public ceremonies, and a special evening fundraising event. At the fundraiser, patrons will be able to meet Farmer and obtain a copy of the 2003 bestselling book depicting his life's work, Mountains Beyond Mountains, the Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World, by Tracy Kidder. Proceeds from the event will be given to Farmer's nonprofit outreach, Partners in Health. Call Tricia Bechtelheimer at (352) 796-3519.
