Editor's note: The following appeared in the Saturday, May 29, 2010, print edition of The Herald-Mail:
Thumbs up to Carolyn Brooks and Roger Stenersen, who recently were named 2010 campaign chairs for United Way of Washington County. Two good leaders for a big job. Good luck.
Thumbs up to the Hagerstown Kiwanis Club for donating $5,200 in scholarships to help four local students further their education. The students are Tanner Beal of St. Maria Goretti High School, Chelsea Stigile of Hancock Middle/Senior High School and Melissa Carson and Zachary Gilbert of North Hagerstown High School.
Thumbs up to South Lynn, who received the John Frye Historical Preservation Award on Tuesday from the Washington County Commissioners for his work in restoring the Kennedy Farmhouse near Dargan. Lynn spent more than $100,000 in personal, state and federal funds restoring the farmhouse from which abolitionist John Brown launched his ill-fated raid on the federal arsenal in Harpers Ferry in 1859.
