The 2014 Anne T. Lydon Volunteer of the Year award was presented to John Howard on Norwood Day, September 13, for his many contributions to the Town of Norwood. The award was presented by Superintendent of Recreation Gerry Miller who said Mr. Howard was the driving force for getting the Senior Center moved from the recreation building to its current location. This award is given annually at Norwood Day, generally to “someone who does a great job behind the scenes,” Miller said.
The Norwood TONY (Ten Outstanding Norwood Youths) Awards were initiated over 40 years ago to recognize exceptional Norwood youths in grades 10-12 for their significant contributions that included their time, effort and talent with voluntary contributions to their church, community and other worthy causes. To be eligible, the students must be Norwood residents but can attend schools outside of town.
