“The Dorns are the sort of people that bring soup to ailing friends, help out the elderly with small repairs, and give rides to their Amish neighbors as a matter of course,” the committee said in its announcement.
During the three month renovation of the Springfield Library last year, the Dorns volunteered so much time moving books and bookcases that Town Librarian Echo Weller joked about bringing in cots for them.
According to Beverly Guilfoyle , Clerk of Session at the First Presbyterian Church of Springfield: “If they hear of something at church that needs to be done, the next thing you know, it’s magically done (Dorn done).”
