Relive the top "feel good" stories of 2012.
A big part of New Lenox is the volunteer spirit of hard-working community members. This story features a list of the top stories that demonstrated without a doubt the compassionate response, outreach and fun-loving efforts made by residents, village officials, police, firefighters, churches, schools, children and non-profit organizations.

For three hours Nov. 14, the coaches worked one-on-one with job seekers desperate to abandon the ranks of the unemployed. Boot Camp for Job Seekers is the brainchild of Village Economic Development Director Nancy Hoehn, who previously …
