2015 marked our 11th Hometown Hero celebration as we presented the award to David Hewey, Sr. of Weare.
Each year, in conjunction with our Customer Appreciation Day, we present a Hometown Hero Award to an individual or community organization within our service area that has made outstanding contributions to the community.
Mr. Hewey is a long-time resident of Weare. He has been a member of the Weare Fire Department since 1988, and worked tirelessly for the Weare Highway Department from 1995 through his retirement 2010. He helped build the concession stand at the John Stark Football Field in 2008, and in his spare time today he mows the lawn for St. Theresa’s Church in Henniker. In the winter months, he shovels snow and sands the walkways at the Town Office and Town Hall. He also finds time to perform maintenance work for the town’s Safety Complex.
Mr. Hewey was nominated by the Weare Selectman for his continued contributions to the town of Weare. He is pictured below alongside (from left to right) Chief Robert Vezina, Weare Fire Department; Susan Rand King, President of Granite State Communications; Naomi Bolton, Weare Town Administrator; and Vice Chairmen Thomas Clow, of the Weare Board of Selectman.
