Brunswick's "Distinguished Citizens" program is honoring a new group of people in 2019. This newspaper has already run profiles on Eleanor Milligan (July 11), five core members of the powerhouse Brunswick Volunteer Ambulance Auxiliary (July 18), and George Chick, the Brunswick dairyman who lived to be 101 (July 25). This week's paper includes a great profile of three-term mayor Carroll Jones. Don't miss it!

Pictures: Carroll Jones with some of his grandchildren. The Souder & Chick Dairy on the west end of Brunswick Street (Mr. Chick is third from the left). The Ladies Auxiliary's Anna Thornton, Ella Spence, Charlotte Barnhouse, and Dorothy Moss, who passed away this month; the late Thelma Spence is part of the group being hononred.

Brunswick High held its Prom on a Friday night— isn't that a first? And it was so windy that the traditional red carpet entrance was a real challenge. Here are a couple of pictures from this week's Citizen:
• Braving the wind are friends Isabelle Stassi, Emily Rimel, Maria Hadley, Gabrielle Bowie, and Aubrey Smothers.
• Caught inside with boots and hats, a quick picture was taken with some prop hats from the photo booth. The Brunswick Police officers are Corporal Chris Handler and (the one who drew the short straw on hat choice) Officer Sean Kohler. The junior class members photographed are Chris Payne, Jacob Barton and Tyler Pearl. The students advised they are the last of the 'real cowboys' in town and do not live in townhouses.

Did you know there are two new ways to get the latest news from the Citizen?

We have created two groups on @Go2snetwork, a free private social networking app for web and mobile that has chosen the Brunswick area as its home base.

Go2s offers its users a way to stay connected within their closest social circles without the privacy lapses and heavy-handed advertising allowed by traditional social media.

Non-subscribers to The Citizen can get the week's compelling news briefs a day before print publication by clicking https://qy3mn.app.goo.gl/NAbgGeP8NuQW9aJd2 to join the Brunswick Citizen (Digest) group. Subscribers to The Citizen can get full versions of (many) articles by clicking https://qy3mn.app.goo.gl/PY0qfxFBfeF7pzBP2 to join the Brunswick Citizen (Subscriber) group.

If you are not yet signed up for Go2s, you will first be prompted to create an account or download the mobile app before being prompted to join a group.
