BELMONT — The town yesterday honored a construction company, local Girls Scouts, and a farming couple for their contributions to the town's quality of life.
The Board of Selectmen honored Busby Construction for the work its crew performed in the village revitalization project, the Girl Scouts and their leaders for youth volunteerism, and Cindy and Joseph Rolfe for helping to preserve the town's agricultural heritage.
The winners of the Community Heritage Awards received a framed certificate featuring the 1833 Belmont Mill tower. The annual presentations, which began in 2011, are held to coincide with National History Week. Belmont Heritage Commission Chairman Linda Frawley announced the recipients which Selectmen Chairman Ron Cormier presented the certificates.
The Busby Construction crew, headed by Rick Segalini was cited for the way it carried out the village revitalization project and for its advice regarding the historic bandstand.
The Girl Scouts were honored for their many contributions to the town over years, in particular their entry to the town's Old Home Day parade, and the planting 2,500 daffodils in the Village area.
Cindy and Joseph Role were honored for the restoration of the 1860s Lacasse-Rolfe Farm on Route 106, which has involved the reclaiming of pasture land and the rebuilding of stone walls. The couple also recently planted 1,000 apple trees.
