Patricia Snow Bradbury of East Bridgewater, Timothy Hay of West Bridgewater and Peter “The Soupman” Kelleher of Bridgewater to be honored at Oct. 22 reception
BRIDGEWATER — The Rotary Club of the Bridgewaters named its three “Citizens of the Year” in September, and honored the three during a weekend event.
The annual award, now in its 19th year, celebrates people who have made an outstanding contribution to their communities, explained Bruce Marquis, who chairs the club’s award committee. “It’s amazing, the people you uncover that you’ve never heard of through this process, and the amazing things they do,” Marquis said.
This year’s winners are Patricia Snow Bradbury, who has run an East Bridgewater dance studio for more than five decades; Timothy Hay, a volunteer who serves on many West Bridgewater town committees; and Peter Kelleher, better known as “The Soupman” of Bridgewater. The club solicited nominations in August, Marquis explained, and his committee chose one winner from each town. The three will be feted at an Oct. 22 reception at Sachem Rock Farm in East Bridgewater.
