While the community of people who have done much to make Frederick such a unique place is deep and wide, it would be difficult to find anyone whose life and career have spanned as many levels of public service as Jim Grimes has,” said Schiffman. “He has devoted more than 50 years to improving the quality of life in the Frederick community, and we are pleased to add him to the ranks of our Good Samaritans of the Year.
