GREENVILLE, Maine — A woman who served the community for 19 years was recognized by selectmen Wednesday for her dedicated service.

Selectman Bonnie DuBien, whose term was up this year and who chose not to seek re-election, was presented with a plaque and a clock. In light of budget curtailments, employees and selectmen pooled their resources for the gifts, according to Town Manager John Simko.

DuBien served on both the Greenville School Committee and the Board of Selectmen. She had been chairman of the Board of Selectmen for the past five years.

“She’s been an excellent chair to work with. I’ve really enjoyed working with her,” Simko said. “She had the best interest of the folks of Greenville at heart.”

Another highlight of Wednesday’s meeting was the presentation of a check to cover the cost of the Fourth of July fireworks. Joey Harris, deputy fire chief, presented a $3,500 check to selectmen on behalf of the Fire Department. The department raised the funds from a car wash and from business donations.

Central Maine Pyrotechnics, the fireworks contractor, had advised the town that if it met its $3,500 goal, the company would donate another $1,000 worth of fireworks for the event, according to Simko.
