The Waltham Lions Club

created the Waltham HERO Awards to recognize local heroes in the city of Waltham who very rarely get any recognition.  These are people who volunteer their time to make Waltham a better place to live, work and play.

Together with the Discover Waltham, The Waltham West Suburban Chamber of Commerce and The Waltham Community Access Corporation, the Waltham Lions Club, choose 3-5 heroes from the nominations submitted by Waltham residents and business people each year.   There are three award categories; Business Hero, Community Hero and Unsung Hero.
