Lions Club Announces Amherst Citizens of the Year
John Harvey received honors as Amherst’s 2020 Citizen of the Year at this year’s 4th of July town celebrations as last year’s events were cancelled due to the pandemic. Harvey has been a member of the town conservation commission for over 30 years. Among his contributions, he led the effort to double the conservation lands’ holdings, introduced technology to ensure accurate mapping and detailed trail maps and supervised the volunteers who maintain the trails. He led the team to design and build the Peabody Mill Environmental Center that is the town’s hub for environmental education. Wife Suk in on the left.
Anne Krantz was named Amherst’s 2021 Citizen of the Year at the town’s July 4th celebrations. A resident since 1983, she volunteered to serve on several town and state boards and committees that advocate environmental maintenance and protection, including the town Planning Board, the Amherst Conservation Committee, the Stormwater Committee, and the State Pesticide Control Board. She also was a Cub Scout Pack 22 Den leader and regularly helped create costumes for the PTA’s plays. Her name will be engraved on a permanent plaque that resides in Amherst Town Hall.
