Congratulations Paul Hughes, Citizen of the year!


Paul Hughes named 2016 Citizen of the Year, presented by Alison Mann, GFWC Greenland member.

From the many nominations submitted, Mr. Paul Hughes was selected as Greenland’s Citizen of the Year. Cited for his “diligent and dedicated service to the town,” Paul was nominated by several people for sharing his years of research and writings on the town history. He has recorded and preserved many interesting facts about the town, the homes in it, the rich history of our heritage here and many well-documented ancestry lines.

Paul’s interest in the town history continued the early work collected and researched by his father (Citizen of the year in 1984) and expanded it. He compiled a chronological history of the town and this collection is available for all to use at the Weeks Public Library. People seeking the history of their home in town or of ancestry are directed to the library or to the town office, where they can find a wealth of information, all thanks to Mr. Hughes.

His nomination letters cited his willingness to help and his interest in seeking information in response to personal inquiries. “His extensive library, superb language and knowledge of former citizens is amazing…He is also a good will ambassador for the town. With his extensive knowledge of Greenland, Paul has given the town a legacy that will remain when all of us have departed.”

For these many contributions, Paul Hughes was awarded the 2016 Citizen of the Year recognition by the Greenland Women’s Club at the first of this summer’s concerts at the bandstand. Congratulations, Paul, and thank you for your many efforts on behalf of the citizens of Greenland!
