Citizen of the Year 2009
In Memory of Hazel Marlow, our dear Friend who past away January, 2011.
As a member of the Friends for over 25 years, Hazel volunteered her time and talents at all of the fundraising events for the Friends. She made countless sandwiches and desserts for Town Meeting Luncheons, scooped ice cream at the Ice Cream Socials, sold books at Old Home Day celebrations, donated plants from her garden for the Plant Sale,and no matter what else needed to be done, Hazel Marlow was always there to help. She was a quiet, gentle person who believed in giving back to the community.
Dedicated volunteers such as Hazel Marlow who give a lifetime commitment to their community are rare and special individuals. Sandown was extremely fortunate to have such an individual. She was a role model for all of us.
