That's my dad! Monongah Citizen of the Year!

This year the festival honored four very special individuals who have all demonstrated, through their selfless actions, that which makes our town such a great place to live. Paulah Sloan who is a lifelong citizen of Monongah, coincidentally a daughter and grandaughter of previous honored citizens. She and her husband Dave, have operated family businesses in the town for many years, and in addition to serving the many people who have frequented the businesses with grace and a smile. Paulah has tirelessly devoted countless volunteer hours landscaping and maintaining all the flower gardens around town, helping to keep our town looking beautiful. John Myers, a fine gentleman from Paulah's neighborhood, is a familiar face to all the school children in our town, as he spends countless hours main...taining many of the children's areas, keeping them litter free and safe, such as the bus shelter, the ball park, the playground and the Rails to Trails. You can often find him ensuring the safety of the children who wait at the bus shelter, helping to make their day just a little bit brighter. Two of these very special kids who have benefitted from Mr. Myers' selfless acts, have also served to inspire not only him, but all those who know them. Desiree Parker and Chloe Nickerson truly show us how to accept difficult situations with grace and determination. Both of these girls have been diabetics since early childhood, yet they bear this burden without complaint, but choose to deal with life problems with a sense of responsibility beyond their years, and a smile that brightens the day in our town.See More
