Sue Hamilton Receives Award for Outstanding Service to Town of Hiram

The Hubert W. Clemons Award for Outstanding Service to the Town of Hiram was presented to Sue Hamilton on Sat. Oct. 21 at the Hiram Historical Society’s Annual Trash Can Turkey Roast and Great Ossipee Museum Open House

Hiram Historical Society is pleased to award Sue Hamilton the 2023 Hubert

W. Clemons Award for Outstanding Service to the Town of Hiram. Sue gives

her time unconditionally to make our community a better place, always

willing to lend a helping hand. She has been instrumental in the success of

our Hiram Community Center, Soldiers Memorial Library, and Hiram Arts


Sue joins an esteemed group of awardees: Donna Ward, 2022; Susan D. Moulton,

2021; Lura Sawyer, 2020; and Mary Hannaford, 2019. The first award was bestowed in 2006 upon Hubert W. Clemons, for whom the award is named, for his many

years devoted to Hiram’s history.

Her experience as an elementary teacher has come to bear in the many events

in which she participates, especially her skill in working with children at

various programs such as with the Children’s Museum of Maine events. At

Soldiers Memorial Library she helps select books for young patrons and has

donated many items to make the children’s area more robust.

A lighter moment at a Roast Beef Supper

The Library’s fundraisers have been a success thanks to Sue’s cooking

skills. She plans menus, prepares the food, serves, and cleans up all

without complaint and with little assistance. She spearheaded Wednesday

coffee hours, making sure coffee is hot and often baking something to share.

If you have had the opportunity to partake in the Hiram Community Center’s

Roast Beef Suppers*, you saw Sue serving pies – she has baked many of them.

Sue works without complaint and is a dedicated volunteer who gives her all. We are fortunate to have her and are happy to bestow this much deserved honor on her.

*The last Roast Beef Supper is Saturday. November 4, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. at Hiram Community Center, 14 Historical Ridge.
