NABB Community Service Awards Given to Jackie Royce and Susan Ashbrook
The NABB annual meeting was held at Fisher College on Wednesday, September 22 (click here to view a recording of the meeting). Remarks were made by NABB Chair Elliott Laffer and State Representative Jay D. Livingstone. Nancy Gertner, NABB Secretary, read the slate of proposed officers and directors who were subsequently voted in to office.
Presented by Michael McCord, Jackie Royce was honored with the Paul Prindle Community Leadership Award. Elisabeth Morris accepted the award on Jackie’s behalf. Michael noted Jackie’s efforts with the Green Committee and other Boston organizations which are educating the public and taking action to end the negative effects of climate change. Back Bay and planet earth both have Jackie to thank for her efforts.
Lauren Thomas presented the Mary Natale Citizenship Award to Susan Ashbrook for her long standing work with many NABB committees and events. In particular, Susan was an early advocate for the Clarendon Street Playground and has served in NABB leadership.
Susan has also taken leadership positions with the Garden Club and the Gibson House. Her many contributions have made the Back Bay a better place for us all.
