If you think a mother of four has enough on her hands, you haven't met this year's Bethany Citizen of the Year, Kim Chernecky. A passion for caring and a commitment to action garnered Chernecky the award. She will receive the honor at the annual spaghetti supper scheduled for Saturday, April 1 at the Bethany Town Hall. Chernecky has asked that all those attending bring a nonperishable food item to the event.
"Kim is being honored for her tireless efforts on behalf of those struggling with poverty, abuse, illness and misfortune," says citizen of the year nominating committee chair, Steve Thornquist. "Kim is a self-starter who combines the Yankee virtues of independence and ingenuity with a sense of neighborly caring that is hard to miss", he adds. "She doesn't waste time worrying about obstacles. She just gets in there and does it."
