The Scarborough Salomon Flynt
Community Service Award

The Scarborough Salomon Flynt Community Service Award Committee is accepting nominations for its third annual award, May 2020. This Award is a result of the merger of the Faith R. Scarborough Award and the Williamstown Community Chest Volunteer of the Year Award.

The award honors Faith Scarborough and her dedication and efforts 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 Scarborough Salomon Flynt Award will recognize a person, persons’ or civic group’s demonstrated dedication, excellence and integrity to community service in order to make Williamstown a better place. Nominators should provide a narrative of accomplishments in support of their nominee. With many wonderful people nominated in a given year, much of the Committee’s decision making is based on the substance of the reasons given for the nomination and provides the content of the award recipient’s certificate.

The committee will select a recipient who has demonstrated integrity, excellence, and dedication in community service. The award will be presented at town meeting on May 19, 2020 at Williamstown Elementary School. The deadline for nominations is April 19. Nominations should be emailed to the town moderator at afilson@williamstownma.gov, submitted in a sealed envelope to the Town Manager’s office or fill out the form below.
