Lewiston Citizen of the Year
Paulette Glasgow has been chosen by Town of Lewiston Supervisor, Dennis Brochey as the 2015 Town of Lewiston Citizen of the Year. Paulette's long standing involvement and volunteerism in town initiatives have led to many completed projects that have benefited the residents and businesses in the Town of Lewiston.
As a resident of the Town of Lewiston for over thirty years, Paulette has been fortunate to take part of many of the positive changes that have happened within the Town. Paulette's involvement with the town began working with seniors, volunteering as part of the meals on wheels program in Lewiston. That involvement grew to also serving on the Senior Advisory Board and now as a Board Member of the Lewiston Senior Club.
It was her time spent delivering meals that led to the decision to run for public office. She was persuaded to run by Fran Maher and Chuck Stojak, who also persuaded Paulette to change political party affiliation at the same time. She served on the Town Board from 1993 - 1997. While serving as Parks & Recreation liaison, Paulette worked with the town's Recreation Commission to improve town parks and expand recreation programming. . Through these improvements more baseball diamonds, playgrounds and restroom facilities were made available. While no longer a Town Board Member, Paulette still attends Town Board Meetings and remains active and up to date in all matters concerning the town.
Paulette has also been a strong supporter of all things Sanborn related. She attended meetings of the Sanborn Business and Professional Association, helping them become incorporated and gathering all of the paperwork to make the association get off the ground and running. Paulette was also a part of the Board of Directors of the Sanborn Area Historical Society helping to build the Farm Museum in 1996. As part of that board, she helped solicit funding from grants, municipal support, donations and sponsors to build the museum on the grounds of a century old farm on Rt. 31. The farm museum today hosts many festivals and events and has been host to many school field trips and visits. Paulette and her husband are active members of the Sanborn Area Historical Association.
As an advocate for the Town of Lewiston, many have thanked Paulette for her continued involvement and keeping people informed. She respects a transparent and open government and looks forward to many more things being taken care of in the Town. Some hopeful items that she would like to see accomplished are having the Senior Building updated and repaired, the infrastructure of the Town, the Frontier House revitalization and the Sanborn Farm plans to move to the next phase.
Paulette and her husband George, who was born and raised in Lewiston, have been married for thirty four years. She enjoys reading, being outdoors and looks forward to the first opportunity in Spring to cut the grass outside! Paulette is a member of the Historical Association of Lewiston, the Sanborn Area Historical Society, an officer for the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians and also an officer of the Friends of the Lewiston Library.
The Town of Lewiston has been fortunate to have Paulette as a community advocate, involved and dedicated resident who takes pride in where she lives. The Niagara River Region Chamber of Commerce, Supervisor Dennis Brochey and the Town of Lewiston Council are proud to honor Paulette Glasgow as the 2015 Town of Lewiston Citizen of the Year.
