Editor's note: We apologize for misspelling the name of this award. It has been corrected.
The Weston300 Committee last fall requested nominations for the first J. Ward Carter Civic Awards, and the committee received a slew of responses.
Now, the award recipients have been chosen and they, or a representative for the recipient, will receive the award during a public ceremony in the Weston High School auditorium on Jan. 12 at 4:30 p.m.
The award was established in conjunction with Weston's 300th anniversary and was named in honor of J. Ward Carter, a former executive director and town administrator who served Weston for 52 years. The award's goal is to "recognize those persons whose contributions to the Town of Weston are exemplary,” according to the town’s website.
During Saturday's ceremony, the following individuals will be honored:
Alfred L. Aydelott
George P. Bates
Priscilla N. & Edward M. Dickson (Mr. Dickson posthumously)
H. Kenneth Fish (postumously)
Pamela W. Fox
Kathleen B. McCahan
Edwin J. Taff
Frances B. Tucker
Joan B. Vernon (posthumously)
Harold B. Willis Jr. (posthumously)
The public is invited to attend the free ceremony, which will include, beginning at 4 p.m., a musical prelude. Following the ceremony, the public is invited to a candlelight reception at Weston Town Hall.
