2019 Citizens of the Year

Tony and Linda Masciadri

Tony and Linda Masciadri, the Old Hallowell Day Citizens of the Year for 2019, have volunteered so much for the city of Hallowell and its various organizations it would almost be simpler to list what they haven't done.

Born and raised in Hallowell, where he is now the third generation owner of the century-old monument business that bears his grandfather's name, Tony has over the years served on various city committees as well as ballot clerk and warden, City Councilor, and Mayor. For decades, Tony and Linda have been members of the City of Hallowell Cemetery Committee, and officers of the Hallowell Centennial Burial Ground Association, Inc.

Linda left a banking career to start her own business, Masciadri Accounting, in 1981. But she still has found time to serve over the years on the City of Hallowell Community Development Committee and on the boards of Row House, Inc., Old Fort Western, and the Hubbard Free Library. Linda has provided accounting and payroll services to the latter for almost three decades, and has volunteered as Treasurer of the Old Hallowell Day Committee since 2014.

Hallowell has inevitably changed over the years, the Masciadris note, but the city has retained its character and appeal, they say, thanks in large part to the volunteer efforts of so many generous and civic-minded citizens. It's certainly a way of life for the Masciadris: "When you notice something that's needed, get involved and make it happen."
