The KNUJ Hometown Hero for December is a group this month: the New Ulm Community Friends organization. For 26 years now hundreds of volunteers have banded together to prepare and serve a free Thanksgiving meal for the community. Around 1,100 meals have been served each year in recent years. The Hometown Hero recognition is sponsored by KNUJ AM and FM and your New Ulm Hy-Vee.
