We are very proud that our own Sara Pletcher, Operations Manager of Zephyr Conferences, was recently awarded the Citizen of the Year Award in her hometown of Milford, Delaware.
The Chamber of Commerce of Greater Milford presents the award annually to a citizen who demonstrates outstanding achievement and support of the community of approximately 10,000 people. While that might seem like a small town, the size of Milford in no way diminishes our respect for the award. In fact, Sara embodies the idea of thinking globally and acting locally.
To make this post official, here is a quote Sara gave her local newspaper. “It’s a great honor to be recognized for my volunteer service to the City of Milford. I have a passion for this City and I’m constantly striving and encouraging others to make Milford the best place to live, work, and play. For others to recognize that passion and nominate me for Citizen of the Year is very humbling.”
Sara also told the paper this about her current job with us: “About a year and a half ago, I quit the comforts of corporate America to accept my dream job of planning beer, wine and food conferences for a company based in Montana. The flexibility of working from home has several perks, one of which is the ability to give back to my community through my Downtown Milford, Inc. presidency. So while it was a daunting leap of faith, I’m proud I took it and accepted the challenge.”
You will see Sara at all of our conferences, managing the event. Congrats, Sara!
