Sharon Cutler- Mendon’s Senior Citizen of the Year

Sharon Cutler was recently named Mendon's Senior Citizen of the Year and many who know the long time Mendon resident agree the honor is long due.

Cutler has lived in Mendon since she was six and throughout the years she has watched as her community has gone through many changes. "I was in the second graduating class of Nipmuc High School," she said fondly, remembering back to the days when the high school in Mendon was what is now Miscoe Hill School.

Cutler remembered a time when Mendon was barely on the map. "No one could find us," she said laughing. She recalled when years ago there was no mail delivery in town and how she would have to travel to the town's tax collector's home to pay her taxes.

She and her husband Donald raised their children in Mendon and her son Mark and his family still reside in town. Their other son, Tim, lives in Attleboro with his family. She also attended Dean Junior College and Northeastern University. For 25 years, she was employed at the Foxboro Company and worked as a project manager.

Cutler's tradition of community service goes back to 1978 and her list of contributions to her hometown is long and many. She is a former elected member of the Board of Selectmen and has also served on the Finance Committee, the Zoning Bylaw Review Committee, the Tri-Town School Feasibility Study Committee, and the Fire Department and Police Department Study Committee. She has also served on the Long Range Finance Committee and was Treasurer of the Friends of the Mendon Police Station. Currently, she sits as a Member at Large of the Land Use Committee.

Cutler feels it's critical for residents of all ages to take an active role in their community. "Everybody has a skill set they can contribute," she says. "Different age groups can offer a plethora of knowledge. Youth, parents, and seniors give committees a better balance."

Resident and friend Dick Skinner nominated Cutler. He has known her since the two served together on the Zoning Bylaw Review Committee years ago. "She very much deserves this," he said of Cutler and her award. Skinner said her contributions to various town committees and boards have helped so many. "She has an amazing capacity to pull facts and figures and lay them out for people," he said of all her public service roles past and present.

To make it official, Cutler will be honored with a special lunch at the 35th Annual Senior Citizen's Day on Sunday, September 16, at the Mendon Unitarian Church. The luncheon will be hosted by the Mendon's Lions Club.
