Ron Patch of Chester was recently named Citizen of the Year by Grand Master Thomas Johnston IV of the 11th Masonic District in Chester. Ron is a long time friend of The Messenger staff. We were happy to hear he received the award, and agree with the assessment that Ron's "high energy level" and "commitment to projects" makes him well deserving of the honor.
We also thought that the honor rated more than just a quick mention inside, so we decided to put Ron on our cover this week. Congratulations to a good guy and hardworking citizen.
