To the editor:
At a dinner held on Oct. 7 at St. Florian Hall in Wintersville, for being chosen a Community Star, I was given a medallion from the Herald-Star, The Weirton Daily Times and Weirton Medical Center. It was a wonderful night. Everyone made you feel special, from corsages to dinner to speeches made by everyone.
I wanted to thank the people who nominated me for this great honor: Kay and John Finney and their wonderful family; Erica, Sean, Josh, Ryan and Lara Dagrava; and Michael Kassey and Cami Minor. Also, my thanks to Gloria Renda, Al Arabia, Linda Chipps, Richard Clashman and my partners on the fundraising committee, Karen Lundquist and Connie Crawford. Special thanks to my family and friends, not just the ones who were there to help me celebrate: my sister, Jay Trikones; my brother and sister-on-law, John and Robin Young; and to all them for their love and support.
Please come out and visit and see all the work we have done on out 1880 Pleasant Hill Historical School House on state Route 213.
