Hometown Heroes

Los Altos is made up of a wide variety of individuals who care about giving back to the community.  This year, Community Services Agency (CSA) held its 10th breakfast honoring these individuals and organizations.

This year, Paul & Liz Nyberg, publishers of the Los Altos Town Crier, received the heartfelt appreciation of a sell out crowd.  The post below is a slightly edited article from the Crier.  Enjoy…

With Google located in Mountain View, multimillion-dollar homes spread throughout Los Altos Hills and an estimated median household income of more than $140,000 in Los Altos, it’s sometimes difficult to imagine area residents in dire straits.

But the numbers tell a different story at the Community Services Agency, a support-services non-profit organization that has seen a 300 percent increase in the number of people it serves in the past year alone.

“Poverty and need exist among us,” said CSA Associate Director Maureen Wadiak. “You help us make things happen.”

The “you” was the packed audience gathered Sept. 17 at the Crowne Plaza Cabaña in Palo Alto to honor CSA’s 2010 “Hometown Heroes” – Los Altos residents Liz and Paul Nyberg.

“This large crowd speaks volumes because of those we are honoring today,” said Tom Myers, CSA executive director.

Myers commended the Nybergs’ community involvement. He included Liz’s work tutoring and mentoring students through Partners For New Generations and her volunteer activities with the Los Altos History Museum. He noted Paul’s work with the 10-year-old Los Altos Cultural Association, which has contributed $1 million to projects benefiting Los Altos.

Myers paid tribute to the couple’s ardent support of CSA through the Town Crier’s Holiday Fund and their participation in the agency’s Chefs Who Care monthly fundraisers.

The Nybergs are perhaps best known as publishers of the Los Altos Town Crier, celebrating its 63rd year in business – 17 with the Nybergs at the helm.

“It’s lots of fun being part of the team that creates this hometown paper,” Paul said. “We appreciate our advertisers and readers who keep reading the Town Crier.”

The Nybergs are particularly proud of the newspaper’s annual Holiday Fund, which has raised more than $1.5 million during the past 10 years in support of local non-profit organizations.

Dick Henning, who established the Celebrity Forum Speakers Series, served as guest speaker at the morning-breakfast event. Henning urged the audience to be role models for today’s generation, modeling a love of learning, showing kindness and respect, and serving others. And don’t be afraid to take the lead, Henning said.

“The person who only knows ‘how’ is always a follower to those who know ‘why,’ Henning said, quoting Aristotle.
