City Celebrates Paying Off the
City Center Bond
Shrewsbury 2018 Citizen of the Year
Mayor Buckley had this to say "I nominated Rick Steingruby because he has a spirit of giving in all that he does. Rick has served the community as alderman since 2013. Along with his responsibilities as Alderman, Rick has shared his knowledge as a "Master gardener” with the City of Shrewsbury. Rick has dedicated numerous hours to selecting, planting, and maintaining trees and shrubs around our community. He is an active member of his church where he sings in the choir. Rick has also been committed to fundraising for the Cystic Fibrosis foundation. He has cycled more than a hundred miles, raising thousands of dollars to find a cure to this debilitating disease. But most importantly, Rick has been a loving husband to his wife Mary and a devoted father to his children; Luke, Stuart, Carrie and Aidan. We are pleased to call him neighbor and proud to name him Citizen of the Year."
