The Scarborough Salomon Flynt Community Service Award Committee is
accepting nominations for its eighth annual award.
The Scarborough Salomon Flynt Award recognizes a person’s, persons’ or civic
group’s demonstrated dedication, excellence and integrity in community service
in order to make Williamstown a better place. Nominators should provide a
narrative of accomplishments in support of their nominee. With many deserving
people nominated in a given year, much of the Committee’s decision-making is
based on the substance of the reasons presented in the nomination.
The award is a result of the merger of the Faith R. Scarborough Award and the
Williamstown Community Chest Volunteer of the Year Award. It honors Faith
Scarborough and her dedication to the town as an active volunteer in the Visiting
Nurses Association, St. John’s Church, Williamstown Community Chest, League of
Women Voters, and as the first woman to chair the Board of Selectmen; Edith and
Adolph Salomon, who came to Williamstown in 1939 after having fled Nazi
Germany and the gratitude they exhibited to the community that provided them
refuge and a home for more than 50 years; and Hank and Mary Flynt, whose
numerous contributions to the town, both as volunteers and their generous
bequests, have all made Williamstown the special place that it is.
The award will be presented at town meeting on Tuesday, May 16, 2023. The
deadline for nominations is April 17, 2023. Nominations should be submitted via
the nomination form on the Williamstown Community Chest’s website at
https://goo.gl/a0ZQTi . Using the format on the WCC website, nominations can
be emailed to the email@example.com, or submitted in a
sealed envelope to the Community Chest office at 84 Spring Street or PO Box 204,
Williamstown MA 01267.
