GP Award winner is . . .

Sentry residents voted this week Liz Darling as the Great Person Award Winner for 2016.

Darling, a South Portland resident, was nominated by her daughter, Samantha Darling.

“My mother is the co-owner of Maine Roofing, Inc. a commercial roofing company located in South Portland. Not only does she work 40-plus hours a week running a business and the household she also spends countless hours giving back to the community,” Samantha Darling wrote in the nomination.

“Liz is involved in several different programs and task forces within the community. One of the most visible programs is the South Portland Christmas Toy Drive she started more than five years ago along with the owner of Evelyn’s Tavern. Working with the South Portland Police Department and the teachers in the South Portland schools, children are identified that could use some help to brighten their holidays. This year 206 South Portland children were helped with new coats, boots and toys. Countless hours are spent organizing, fundraising and reaching out to friends, families and businesses to get these families taken care of.”
