Friday, August 1, kicked off the Hogfest 2014 festivities by giving out the annual Citizen of the Year Award. The recipient of the award is longtime Claremont citizen, Terri Schuette.
Deserving winner, Terri Schuette, was recognized Friday evening at 6 p.m. for her talents, contributions and commitment to the town of Claremont.
Schuette was chosen as Citizen of the Year because of her long history of service to the people of Claremont and for her continued involvement.
She has been a reliable source of help in many areas, such as Hogfest, the Community Picnic, and Chamber activities. Terri has been an active member of the Claremont Chamber of Commerce over the years, giving her time and enthusiastic energy to help the people of Claremont.
Aside from being an important part of the Chamber of Commerce, she is Claremont's resident naturalist.
Terri's hard working spirit doesn't just stop at helping with events, she also cares about making sure Claremont continues to look like a welcoming, pleasant place for visitors and to the town's residents by planting, tending, and watering flowers and planters daily during the summer months.
"She waters all these plants on along the street every day," Romell Matejcek, owner of Claremont Service commented before the parade on Sunday.
