Candids from an evening with the stars
Today’s community page offers a reflective glimpse of the 22nd-annual Community Stars recognition dinner and awards presentation by the Herald-Star and The Weirton Daily Times. (See additional photos in today’s print edition.)
The awards program has been a tradition of the newspapers since 1998.
Family and friends turned out in full force on Sept. 25 for the celebration held at Froehlich’s Classic Corner in Steubenville with owners Greg and Debbie Froehlich as event hosts.
The salute to unsung heroes who make a difference in their communities in a variety of ways included the honoring of, in alphabetical order, Mary Albaugh of Bloomingdale; Michael Berry of Steubenville; Chari Bills of Steubenville; Michael Bozzelli of Steubenville; Rhonda Clevenger of Wintersville; William Curenton of Weirton; Sandy and Phil Judy of Richmond; Madelynn McKinney of New Cumberland; Dwayne Morley of Bergholz; and John Schwertfeger of Follansbee.
The evening was sponsored by Weirton Medical Center with special support from M&M True Value Hardware.
