Michael Ryan is reporting in the Windham Journal the Community of Windham Foundation handed out its T. Patrick Meehan Community Service awards Fri., Jul. 31. Kathy Falke, an active local volunteer, and highway superintendent Thomas Hoyt were presented with the award named in memory of the late town supervisor Pat Meehan during the annual Civil War Heritage Music Gathering and Encampment at the Centre Church. Hoyt shared his award with the five members of the town's road crew, Gary Thorington, Troy Aplin, Ed Ohl, Mark Smith and Michael Mattice. Foundation chairman John Quinn said of Falke, “She is the kind of citizen who makes Windham a great place to live, work and flourish.” Hoyt worked alongside Meehan for many years and carries a similar sense of what matters most, getting done what needs to get done, Quinn said. The Meehan community service award was established to honor Meehan and to keep his spirit of community service alive.
