Our Everyday Hometown Hero for July is Oxford's Gordon Cook
Gordon Cook is the kind of guy who really doesn’t like to be in the spotlight, but he’s become sort of an expert at cajoling other people to help him realize his annual goal of feeding 160 needy local families every Christmas.
The Oxford man with the surname “Cook” has actually been a cook at the popular Carl’s Diner for more than twenty years, and for the last six of those he’s been running his now famous prime rib raffles every holiday season to benefit the local food pantry.
“Gordon is exactly the kind of community volunteer we hoped to recognize with this program,” said Hometown’s President and CEO Mike Hewitt. “He even got me to commit to being a community reader next year, proving once again that it’s pretty hard to turn a guy like Gordon down.”

Each month during 2014, our 125th Anniversary Year, we will select one individual to recognize as that month's Everyday Hometown Hero. Hometown Bank will present the honoree with a check in the amount of $100 and will make a $100 donation to the local, non-profit organization chosen by our honoree.
Our Everyday Hometown Hero may be anyone who is recognized by his or her community as indispensable because of the contributions they have made and continue to make. We are especially interested in identifying those individuals who work behind the scenes without much recognition, but who do so much in their own quiet way. Do you have someone in mind who you think should be recognized as an Everyday Hometown Hero?
