Sen. Andrew Hosmer helped honor Irene Jewett from East Andover at the State House on May 6. Jewett received the 2013 Vaughan Award in the Executive Council Chamber for outstanding volunteer service to older citizens in Merrimack County. Mrs. Jewett, age 92, was a long-time volunteer with the East Andover Fire Precinct and the Andover Rescue Squad retiring as an EMT when she turned 75. Irene maintains an active interest in helping local individuals in need of assistance and support. She is still referred to as the "Mayor of East Andover" and the "the glue that holds the town together." (Courtesy photo)
