It is always great when one of our local communities honors select citizens for their contributions to their neighbors for the good deeds.they have done through the years.

Sidney just named its own honorees for special awards.  And, as a native of Sidney myself, I think the choices, which include the director of the local animal shelter, the local bowling alley, the superintendent of the high school, and the Sidney Memorial Library, are excellent choices!

The Sidney Chamber of Commerce has named Erin Insinga, the director of the Delaware Valley Humane Society shelter as their "2021 Citizen of the Years".  She was honored for her "advocacy, extraordinary compassion, and overall impact to the community."

Sidney Chamber of Commerce president Teri Schunk said, "This is always a special occasion for the Chamber of Commerce.  We think Erin Insinga is the perfect example of what being a good neighbor to Sidney and our surrounding area is all about. We honored four groups and or individuals at our annual Sidney Chamber of Commerce meeting and we believe all of these honorees really reflect, through their deeds and actions, the best of our community."  The honorees are:

Erin Insinga, "2021 Citizen of the Years"

East Main Lanes and Lounge:  Business of the Year for their "investment in the community and enhancing the quality of life for all its residents."

Sidney Memorial Library:  Non-Profit of the Year for their"outstanding commitment to Sidney and all of its residents."
