On Sunday, March 27, Peggy O'Connor was inducted as the latest Sherburne Citizen of the Year. It was SRO at the American Legion, where Peggy humbly and eloquently accepted her plaque. Peggy received a standing ovation at the end of her acceptance speech, which was peppered with humor, poignant remembrances, and genuine gratitude. From toddlers to seniors, all in attendance let Peggy know how much she is appreciated. "I graduated from Sherburne-Earlville High School," she said, "and went to Niagara University, where I graduated with a degree in business administration and marketing. After graduation, to quote an old Irish song, I returned to the town I love so well." We're all glad you did, Peg. Congratulations!
