Vidalia Citizen of the Year
Thursday, 21 February 2013

February 22-- Image Vidalia Veterinarian Reid McArthur was named the Vidalia Citizen of the Year for 2012 at the 65th annual banquet held at the Vidalia First Baptist Church’s Kids Bay. 


“I want to say thank you to this community because it’s been a benefit to all of us and I can’t say thank you enough,” McArthur said.  “It’s a tremendous honor to be included in the group that has gone before me.  Toombs County and Vidalia have some incredible people and they are always willing to give and do things for others.” 


Dr. McArthur added, “In a business community like ours you can’t be successful if you don’t give to the community and this is the most giving community I’ve ever lived in.  Everyone thinks of others, animals, people, the community and what’s best for it.  My family, mother, father, and staff  who works hard so that I can go out and do things and I really appreciate them for that.”   


The Vidalia Citizen of the Year is a project of the Vidalia Kiwanis, Rotary, and Lions Clubs and has been going on since 1948.  It was also noted that plans are in the works to revive the Lady of the Year in 2014.  It was originally started in 1972 by the Beta Sigma Phi group but was discontinued several years ago because the group is no longer in existence.
