TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Saturday was about letting you know you are appreciated.

Hamilton Center Inc. hosted it's annual "We Live" event at Rose Park.

That's where families could enjoy vendors, free haircuts, food and drinks, games and other activities.

Today was the third year for the We Live celebration.

Three people were honored with the Outstanding Community Member Award at the event. The winners include:

Mr. Richard Lawson
