WINDHAM — Two Windham citizens were recently honored for many years of service, community support and all around good work.
The Board of Selectmen took time at a recent meeting to present a special recognition award to longtime state representative Mary Griffin, and also honor David Curto as the top volunteer of the year.
Griffin has served as a Windham state representative in District 7 for more than 25 years, most recently re-elected to the current term in 2020.
She also served in past years on the Board of Selectmen and as a member of the Supervisors of the Checklist.
Curto got accolades from the board for his volunteerism. He said he was grateful for the community and that the award was unexpected.
"Gratitude is the greatest achievement anyone can have," Curro wrote on social media afterward.
He added, "For the greater part of my life I have learned if I want to be grateful I’ve got to pour all my love and passion into things that are for the greater good of others; wholeheartedly and without expectations."
Curro said since he moved to Windham, he has found a passion to get involved for the greater good of the community, volunteering on many boards.
He wrote, "I am most grateful for the relationships I have developed with all the other board members, town officials, the citizens of Windham and a town I am so proud to be a part of, a town worth working so hard for."
