Saluting volunteers

On April 16, the City of Aberdeen hosted a Volunteer Dinner at the Wetlands Golf Course to honor citizens who donate their time and energy to the city as a member of an Aberdeen Board. The impact these volunteers have on Aberdeen is incalculable and appreciated. A special thanks goes to Karen Blandford, Executive Director for the Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna, for her insight into Habitat's ongoing mission.

Police Officer's Act of Kindness

The City of Aberdeen and the Aberdeen Police Department would like to recognize the selfless act of rookie Officer Cynthia Mowery. Mowery donated her gently used Volkswagen to a single mother, Nikole Osani of North East, who was struggling to get her 14-month old son Canyon to hospital appointments after he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.

“This was a child’s life at stake," Mowery said in the Aberdeen weekly newsletter. “I pray this will give Nikole hope and some relief so she can continue focusing on her son’s care. Maybe one day she can pay it forward.”
