Ammendolia Honored as Mendon Senior of the Year

Mike Ammendolia was named Mendon's

Senior of the Year.




A room full of family and friends came together to honor Mendon resident Mike Ammendolia for the contributions he has made to his community over more than two decades. He was recently named the town's 36th Senior of the Year and was honored at a luncheon on September 15 at the First Unitarian Parish. The luncheon was sponsored by the Mendon Lion's Club.

"He's certainly made an impact on the town," said Lions Club President Beth Hennessy. Since moving to Mendon almost 30 years ago, Ammendolia has pretty much been a constant figure in the community always giving of his time. He served on the Board of Selectmen for six years and sat on the Finance Committee for 16 years. He has been serving on the Conservation Commission for more than 20 years and continues to be involved with the Friends of the Mendon Police Station. He was recently reappointed to serve on the Finance Committee and currently works as a supervisor for Methuen Construction.

As is tradition, Ammendolia was escorted to his luncheon by the town's Fire Department and rode in on a fire truck. He then walked into a room of family, friends, and many of the residents he served with on various town boards and committees.

From there, the guest of honor received several citations, including one from the Board of Selectmen. "Mike is a man of his convictions. He's always been about giving back to the community," said Selectman Mike Goddard, who served with Ammendolia for several years on the Board. "Mike, I can't think of anyone more deserving of this." Goddard also declared the day, September 15, as Senior Citizen Day.

State Senator Richard Moore D. Uxbridge, was also in attendance and presented Ammendolia with citations from the Governor, the House of Representatives and then the Senate. "I'll read these from lowest to highest," he joked. State Representative John Fernandes D., Milford, was out of the country and was therefore unable to attend.

Ammendolia, his wife Jeanne Davoren, and the rest of his family broke tradition and instead of sitting at a head table, decided to sit among their friends for the luncheon. The Blackstone Valley Tech Leo's Club served a delicious meal of chicken, potatoes, salad, drinks, and dessert.

Ammendolia was obviously quite touched with his award. "I'm usually a pretty tough construction guy, but I'm getting a little chocked up," he said. I'm very honored to receive this and I thank you."
