Troy, VT — Community National Bank’s (CNB’s) Marketing Assistant Tia Drake recently had the honor of presenting Sandy Hilliker with the Bank’s Community Service Award. This award was developed to recognize the “unsung heroes” that make our communities better places to live, work and play.
Sandy has poured her heart and soul into helping the Newport Center Methodist Church thrive. She has been a part of the Church’s Handbell Choir for over 10 years. Sandy’s keen musical ear and caring personality make her a wonderful director. Sandy holds practices once a week to prepare the choir for monthly Church service rings, orders music and makes weekly calls to remind choir members of practice sessions and schedule changes.
As a member of the United Methodist Women’s Group, Sandy plays an active role in the Church’s fundraising dinners. She organizes food donations and is always onsite to help serve food and stays to clean up.
Due to the shortage of ministers in our area, Sandy has been working with a group of Church members to seek out a minister. Despite the difficulty of finding someone to lead Sunday services, Sandy always remains positive and finds a way to make sure Sunday services are held.
To celebrate Sandy’s commitment and dedication to her community, we are proud to present her with the Bank’s Community Service Award for the fourth quarter of 2016. CNB’s Community Service Award honors and recognizes our recipients by making a $500.00 contribution to a local, non-profit organization of the recipient’s choice. Sandy has requested that her donation be made to the Newport Center United Methodist Church.
