Pittsfield’s 2013 Citizen Of The Year
Congratulations to Daniel Schroth Piermarocchi on being selected as
Pittsfield’s 2013 Citizen of the Year. Dan was a past Select Board
member and has volunteered on or been elected to many Pittsfield
Boards. Dan is also a truly dedicated, self-less volunteer for our
known for his many stonewall projects – these walls are the corner
stone of his volunteer work and his connection and involvement with
many different groups in town.
Chamber of Commerce owned billboard signs on Rte. 28 needed some
improvement to the bases that held them and Dan volunteered to build
them out of stone and has continued to maintain them. Dan, as a
Chamber member, has also “worked” at the Children’s Store during the
annual Christmas Tree Lighting event for many years. He was in the
crowd control role when the event was held at the (now) PYW
building. He entertained the long lines of kids (and parents)
waiting outside in the cold. We now hold the Store at PES so it’s
warm, but he still entertains the crowd.
worked tirelessly with the Beautification Committee – constructing
stonewalls for the various flower beds around town and is currently
working on a retaining wall at the Washington House Lot.
Historical Society built Lyman Park and Dan volunteered to help do
the stonework. It was said that he and his team worked long hours
nearly every weekend during the summer for two years. He kept
everyone on the job into the fall and even during snow storms to
complete the project in a timely fashion.
also volunteered his time to repair and build stonewalls at the
Pittsfield Youth Athletic Park on Tilton Hill Rd. On all of his
projects, he spends quite a bit of time finding the right rock and
placing it in the right place to build something that will last for
not only groups and organizations in Pittsfield that benefit from
Dan’s sense of community. We were told that a couple owned a house
in town that needed paint and they were not able to do the project.
Dan rounded up some volunteers and painted the house. Another
property owner needed help fixing up a barn and Dan again, gathered
some help and took on that project.
loves his community and spends a lot of time working on projects
that beautify our town. He is always willing to help and doesn’t
wait to be asked – he usually volunteers first.
you, Dan, for taking the time to be a great volunteer in Pittsfield!
We appreciate all that you have done.
