Where many com­plain of busy sched­ules with no time to spare, Ma­dat Kara has al­ways found time in his sched­ule to give back as much time as he pos­si­bly can. It was that self­less­ness that, last week, earned Kara the Mayor’s City Builder award for his tire­less ef­forts and con­tri­bu­tions to the Meals on Wheels or­ga­ni­za­tion.

"I plan to keep go­ing un­til I phys­i­cally can’t any­more," said the hard­work­ing Kara.
