SOMERVILLE- Mayor Darren Tucker and the town council had a difficult choice to make for this year’s community service award, so they chose two distinguished town members Dec. 11.

“We couldn’t pick between the two people, so we decided to give them both the award because they truly both deserve it,” Tucker said. “The award goes to someone, or in this case two people, who go above and beyond for the town.”

Megan Maples is one recipient, and the other is Mitchell Cowley.

“Mrs. Maples owns Rock Paper Scissors Hair Salon, and she does a beauty pageant and donates all the proceeds of the pageant to the preservation of the old courthouse,” Tucker said. “The other winner was a gentlemen by the name Mitchell Cowley, and he is the pastor at a Church here in Somerville. Each year he has a school supply drive that helps kids with things they need when they go back to school. He has also donated time and money to the Old Cemetery in town. Cowley also has a unity prayer every year around Labor Day and encourages the community to come together and pray for the town and the country.”

The next council meeting will be the first Monday in January.
In other business the council heard the finance and police reports and paid the monthly bills.
