During today's 4th of July street games, Nome Rotary President Danielle Slingsby announced the Little Sisters of Jesus as Nome's citizen of the year.  

The Little Sisters of Nome and Little Diomede have worked with us, lived with us and kept up with us almost all their lives and have showed us the way to live with dignity and grace every minute of the time. They have led exemplary lives in demonstrating their humility and the purpose we each have in living to the best of our ability.  In their quiet way, they have shown that it doesn’t take great wealth, or even great effort to live a good life in Nome.
