To the Times of Ti:
I would like to extend a public thank you to the Chamber of Commerce President, Mike Bush and the Chamber Board Members for selecting me to be the "Citizen of the Year" of Schroon Lake. I am very honored that they chose me out of all the applicants that they receive. I am sure it is not an easy job to chose one person or organization. It is an honor I will cherish for the rest of my life.
The dinner that was held at the Word of Life Inn was wonderful, the food is always great there. And I would like to thank the many people who came to the dinner to share this honor with me. I was overwhelmed. Thank you to all the people who have sent cards and gifts and to all the people who congratulate me wherever I go. I am not one to accept compliments easily but I sure learned how with this honor. It took about a week for my feet to hit the floor. My husband says constantly that he had to make the doorways bigger in our house to get my head through them. Of course, this is not true but I am very proud to have received this award. I love to volunteer and will continue to do so until I no longer can.
Again, thank you to all, especially the Chamber of Commerce.
