Community Stars

Froehlich’s Classic Corner in Steubenville was the setting Monday evening for the largest crowd ever to attend what was the 21st-annual installment of the Herald-Star and The Weirton Daily Times’ Community Stars awards program saluting unsung heroes in area communities. The honorees included, seated, from left, Sandy Day of Wintersville; Lucia Hunt, who was representing her sister, Leia Hunt of Bloomingdale; June Crago of Richmond; Patricia Herring of Steubenville; and Barbara and David Snyder of Weirton; and standing, Mark Nelson of Steubenville; Robert Straka of Toronto; Linda McFerren and Carolyn Walker, both of Toronto; Mary Zimmerman of Wellsburg; and Jim Freiling of Mingo Junction. Weirton Medical Center was the presenting sponsor of the event, with special support being provided by M&M True Value Hardware. — Michael D. McElwain
