by Norman Bassett
Washington County Public Information Officer
In the August 24th meeting of the Washington County Board of County Commissioners, President Greg Snook presented Citizen of the Month honors for August 2004 to Walter Williams of Williamsport.
The recent State Little League Championship Tournament in Williamsport brought players, their families and friends to Washington County from across Maryland. As President of the Conococheague Little League, Walter Williams helped host this year’s event.
Walter was commended for his work in maintaining the Little League fields in Byron Park in a news article earlier this year, and is known for his dedication and devotion to his town, and youth sports programs in the county. In addition, Mr. Williams had shown his devotion to the people of Williamsport in a manner above and beyond the regular activities of Citizenship. Last November, Mr. Williams saved the life of a Williamsport citizen in Byron Park.
Citizen of the Month honors are presented to individuals in Washington County who, through their actions, make a positive impact on the lives of our citizens.
