The program helps to acknowledge and thank members of the Sebastopol community for their contributions in helping to make Sebastopol a better place to live. Honorees are recognized with banners lining Sebastopol’s Main Street and Downtown Plaza, a proclamation by the City Council, and on the City website.
There are three honorees each year, with each honoree being featured for approximately four months.
Past honorees include, Carson Pforsich, Meg Mizutani, and Roger & Linda Collins.
The next honoree will be announced at the April 2nd City Council meeting. Applications for nominees not chosen for the current round will be retained for future consideration.

"People say over and over that what makes Sebastopol unique and special is the people who live here. Our residents are the ‘heart’ of this community. Let's recognize and celebrate them with a recognition program sponsored by the City," said Hinton.
