Six St.Marys residents recognized as part of ‘Strong as Stone’ program

Six St.Marys residents are being recognized for their selfless deeds.

At their meeting last week, town council recognized the six residents as part its “Strong as Stone” program which allows people to nominate those whose volunteer acts benefit the community.

Among the group was Cindy Bilyea, whose strong work ethic led her to become chair of the board for St. Marys Minor Hockey, Quadro Communications, and the St. Marys Healthcare Foundation.

Local teen Daniel Greig was recognized for his extensive volunteer work in the community and his involvement with student council at DCVI.

Ine Keller was applauded for her enthusiastic and inspirational teaching of seniors fitness and falls prevention classes.

Jeff Sager’s pastoral work with our local firefighters was acknowledged, as was his past involvement with events like Evan’s Touch the Truck and mock community disasters.

Pam Zabel was nominated twice this round for her tireless work with the Coldest Night of the Year, her contributions to local causes and her time spent on advisory and fundraising committees.

The final recipient was Phylis Spearin, who has spent 55 years giving back to the community as a member of the St. Marys Kinette Club.

The next call for Strong as Stone nominations will start in February 2025, with recognition to occur in April as part of National Volunteer Week.
