2019 SPIRIT OF AMERICA IS AWARDED TO DEBRA RYAN
Guest column by Leroy Hall
The Town of Etna has recognized a resident who is a “silent hero” because of her volunteerism in the community and the considerable difference she makes through hard work.  This recognition is part of the statewide “Spirit of America” program.
My name is LeRoy Hall and I was asked to write about the Women that I nominated for this award and the Board of Selectman have agreed with me, so we have chosen Debra Ryan to be the 2019 recipient of the Etna Spirit of America Award. She has worked hard to help her Town and its Residents during her years of operating the Etna Village Variety Store.
Debbie, as we all call her, is a very kind hearted person. She has done a lot for the community over the last 15 years that she has been here. She has helped the Etna Volunteer Fire Department when we’re at a long fire or traffic scene with food, drink, or whatever is needed. On several occasions she has opened the store in the middle of the night so the Fire Department, plow drivers, and wrecker drivers can get fuel.
Debbie donates food to many different organizations like the local Church and the Chamber of Commerce. And, if you’ve ever been in need, chances are that Debbie may have helped you in one way or another. She hates to see people going through hard times and when she knows someone is down and out, she’ll put out a collection jar for them and give all the money to them.
Debbie works hard, most days 14 to 16 hours, through good or bad days and in sickness or health. She keeps her promises…why? Because she said she would! She takes pride in her business; things have to be right, no in-between. Debbie loves the Town of Etna and the people in it and for that… we all are thankful for her! So, if you see Debbie, congratulate her for being this years, Spirit of America Award winner!
