Hero of the Week: Volunteers of Turkey Tournament

Join WAND's Gordon Voit every Wednesday for Hero of the Week, where Voit puts the spotlight on a member of the community who is demonstrating unusual character on and off the field!

DECATUR -- It takes tens of thousands of dollars, countless hours and a legion of volunteers to make the economy-boosting Decatur Turkey Tournament happen each year. As we head into Year 50 of the tournament, Gordon Voit celebrates the people who work hard behind the scenes!
