Each year the March of Dimes names an outstanding citizen from the River Region as its honoree for the March of Dimes Citizen of the year testimonial event.

The Citizen of the Year dinner and silent auction honors an outstanding Alabama citizen whose distinguished leadership and devoted community service have contributed greatly to the quality of life for out state and its children. The award winner is also a person who, in the victory of achieving success and acclaim, has given back generously to others. This year’s honoree is no exception.

For 2006 the March of Dimes has announced that Jere Beasley, senior member of the law firm of Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C. has been selected for this honor. “While Mr. Beasley is one the nation’s leading trial lawyers he has never forgotten his commitment to the community. Mr. Beasley has indeed distinguished himself in service to his community as well as to the state of Alabama,” a press release from the area March of Dimes states.

Mr. Beasley will be honored on October 17, 2006 during the Citizen of the Year Testimonial Dinner at the new Grand Balltoom at Wynlakes Country Club. This will be the first event at Wynlakes Country Club since the Grand Ballroom was finished. The evening’s activities will begin at 6 p.m. with a silent auction followed by a meal and a time of honoring Mr. Beasley that will begin at 7 p.m.

The Citizen of the Year in 2004 was Todd Strange and in 2005 it was Dr. John Rd Mathison.
