Help CBC find your Heroes of the Hammer
Nominate a hero by tweeting with #CBCHeroInTheHammer or emailing email@example.com
Being a hero doesn't mean wearing a cape or have a superpower.
CBC is looking for the true Heroes of the Hammer and we need your help finding the special people in Hamilton who bring communities together and make life in their corner of the city richer and more connected.
We're looking for the local organizers, planners and champions who put in the time and energy to bring people together.
Do they organize an annual block party? Make everyone welcome at the dog park? Organize a trail clean up? Build a rink? Shovel driveways? Run a league or club or social event? Whatever it is, tell us about them.
Nominate your hero by tweeting with #CBCHeroInTheHammer or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Over the coming weeks we'll profile some of these special people and find out how life in the Hammer is enriched in unseen ways.
James 'Doc' Greenlee
The heart of McMaster G.S.A. softball for 52 seasons:
James Greenlee has been playing softball at McMaster every summer for more than five decades. In that time the league has changed and the fields too, but one thing has stayed the same: Summer means Doc is always on the diamond.
The good neighbour:
For the past decade or so Chuck Gibson has been acting as a sort of handyman on call for a handful of neighbours in his close-knit townhouse community made up of mostly retirees.
The spirit of Beasley:
Matt Thompson organizes potlucks, outdoor coffee events, community jam nights and more. Perpetually on the go, his big question is always "what can I do to help?"
