Joyce Thompson Honored at Town Board Meeting
On February 14, 2022, the Taghkanic Town Board presented Joyce Thompson (right) with the “Small Town America Civic Volunteer Award”.
Joyce was selected from nearly 700 nominations from 49 states and was chosen as Top 100 National Winner For Outstanding Public Service Volunteerism, calling her service to the community an inspiration to all.
Joyce served on the Town Board for 12 years, is Chair of the town’s Financial Advisory Committee, served for more than ten years as Chair of the Zoning Commission, worked to bring broadband to Taghkanic, and serves on the Columbia County Office for the Aging, as well as many other volunteer efforts on behalf of the community.
Taghkanic is very fortunate to have Joyce as a friend and neighbor and we are very proud that she has been selected for this prestigious award.
