Prior to his 2012 retirement, Smith was a dedicated 17-year employee who spent countless hours helping those in need and supporting grassroots community initiatives.
Smith created Citizen Involvement Day to help recognize individuals and projects that benefit the community, and to give non-profits a platform from which to spread the word of their mission and activities.
This year’s Citizen Involvement Day featured 39 area non-profit groups and organizations.
Joanne Marco was named Citizen of the Year for her longstanding dedication to the community.
Kevin Thibodeau was honored with the Youth Award for his thoughtful involvement and civic responsibility to promote the “Make Music, Save a Life” event benefiting the Maine Youth Suicide Prevention program.

And, Will Neilson received the Al Smith Community Spirit Award for his devotion to Bath and his committed involvement with numerous programs, including Bath Rotary, Main Street Bath and its Economic Restructuring Committee, the Bath Freight Shed, and his service as Chair of the Greater Bath Elder Outreach.
