Donald T. Warner Community Service Award

For more than 20 years, HYSB has recognized area residents who capture the dedication of service and commitment to children and families epitomized by founding member Donald T. Warner during his years of service to our organization. We could not be more proud to add Lori Belter to the distinguished and inspiring list of recipients of the Donald T. Warner Community Service Award. We will present the award to Lori at our annual Community Celebration on May 4 at 5:30 p.m. at the The White Hart Inn in Salisbury.

Lori Belter has distinguished herself as an advocate for music and art in our community, serving as Production Manager for the Housatonic Musical Theater Society, founder of the high school's Musical Society and founder and past president of Tri-State Center for the Arts. She has helped make the Northwest Corner a healthier and more livable place through her contributions on the boards of the Housatonic Child Care Center, the Salisbury Association and the Grove Advisory Committee, the Historical Committee of the Salisbury Association and through her direct service as a 20-year EMT with Salisbury Volunteer Ambulance Service and as a hospice volunteer with the Salisbury Visiting Nurse Association. We recognize Lori for these incredible contributions to the communities of the Northwest Corner, her boundless energy and her commitment to enhancing the lives of area residents.
