Derry News

---- — LONDONDERRY — A longtime volunteer has earned one of the town’s top awards.

Robert Saur has been selected as the 2013 recipient of the Robert W. Lincoln Youth Service Award.

The honor is presented to those who demonstrate leadership, volunteerism and a strong commitment and devotion to the town, especially youth.

Saur will be honored and will receive his award at the Londonderry High School spring pep rally April 25.

The award is named for Bob Lincoln, a longtime volunteer who served on many town boards and committees.

Lincoln served on the School Board for 20 years, has served as chairman of many committees and is an active Londonderry Lions Club member.

Saur was chosen for his many years of dedication to the residents and children of Londonderry, including work with local Boy Scouts.

Saur is a big supporter of school music programs and served as president of the Friends of Londonderry Music during the Londonderry High School Lancer marching band’s last trip to the Rose Bowl parade in California.

“Robert Saur has given of himself selflessly for the youth of Londonderry and clearly exemplifies the spirit of giving and volunteerism that exemplifies Bob Lincoln’s spirit of selfless volunteerism,” the nomination letter stated.

Past recipients of the award include Kay Doyle, Terri Roucheleau, Scott Hale, Mary Theos, Dave Kelly, Ron Campo, John Reynolds, Bob Slater, Gary Fisher and Kevin Foley.

There is a plaque in the high school gym honoring award winners through the years. The pep rally April 25 begins at 8:30 a.m. in the high school gym.
