                 2012 Community Service Award

The Montrose Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, recognized Connie Page for her outstanding contributions to Susquehanna County through her Community Service.

Connie has been involved with the Susquehanna County Historical Society and Free Library Association where she has served on both the Board of Directors and on the two support groups, the Library Friends and the Friends of the Historical Society. Serving on the Board of Directors, she moved from being a member of the Finance Committee to President of the Board as her interest and enthusiasm for the associationís mission and goals became evident. She has either helped organize or is present at nearly every library fundraising event held for many years.

Over the past several years, Connie has also become involved with Salt Springs State Park, located a few miles outside Montrose. Salt Springs has a large number of historic artifacts and Connie has been appointed to the Historic Committee to help with the collections and offer opportunities for visitors and friends to learn about the park and its holdings. Recently, she also helped with the newly created Montrose Adult Schoolís annual fundraiser at Christmas time. Decorated Christmas trees were donated by the community and auctioned to raise money to provide scholarships for the Adult School. Connieís knowledge and experience as both a former teacher and as a docent have made her a valuable friend to many organizations and individuals in Susquehanna County.
