Geraghty said he’s enjoyed nearly every minute of his extensive community service — as he deferred credit to others.
“I’m pleased that people recognize what I and many others have accomplished for the town through the years,” he said. “But I don’t think I should be the only one in the limelight — I’ve worked with a great bunch of people through the years — many others that have made it all happen,” he said. “And when you work with good people, you enjoy what you’re doing.”
Warrensburg Chamber president Lynn Smith said Geraghty deserved the honor.
“Kevin’s dedication to community service over four decades has been extensive and exemplary,” she said.
