Around the Towns

by Cecilia Baress

Resident Helen Silvestri won the 2009 Volunteer Award for her work at Lackawanna County Prison.

Mrs. Silvestri was selected by the Rev. Ricardo Jackson, prison chaplain, for her weekly prayer group visits.

She said receiving the award was gratifying and humbling. "Naturally, I was pleased," she said.

She has volunteered at the prison for about 20 years, hosting a Catholic Charismatic prayer group for female inmates, she said.
