RAMSEY, N.J. — One saves lives, another completely revamped the town pool and several sustain the environment: All 26 Ramsey residents were honored during the annual volunteer award ceremony.

Since 2008, members of various organizations have nominated one or two of their own who they feel made the greatest contribution during the year to be honored during the last municipal meeting of October.

"Ramsey is a wonderful community," Mayor Deirdre Dillon told Daily Voice. "But what makes it so special is everyone who volunteers their time, talent and energy in various ways."

The volunteers who were recognized this year include:

-Alison Maglio Ambulance Corps;

-Steve Yonkers, Knights of Columbus;

-Steven Ahlstedt, Ramsey Rescue

-Jake Englishman, OEM

-Scott Hoitsma, Ramsey Fire Department

-Denise Miccoli, SPARC
