Heritage Society Announces Citizen of the Year

(Erieville, Nelson, NY – Nov. 2012) The town of Nelson and the Erieville-Nelson Heritage Society are pleased to announce that Christabell J. Westcott is this year’s recipient of the Norman Odell Citizen of the Year Award.

This award is presented annually to a citizen or citizens who have volunteered many hours to making the town of Nelson a great place to live.

Christabell is a lifetime resident of Erieville. She and her husband Byron raised four children here; she also has six grandchildren and several great-grandchildren.

Many of us know Christabell as the past town clerk of Nelson, but she is many more things. She is president of the Erieville Nelson Heritage Society, secretary of the Erieville Cemetery Association, and commissioner of the Erieville Water District.

When her children were young, she was involved in Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and served as a Sunday school teacher.

The public is invited to join us in honoring Christabell Sunday, Nov. 4, at 2 p.m. at the Erieville Fire Hall in Erieville.
