Guest column by
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!
|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.
