Williamstown honored two of their own Tuesday evening at the city council meeting with the Pride of Williamstown Award.

Mayor Jean Ford presented Edward Garber and Harold Swartz with the award for their service and dedication to Williamstown over the years.

Garber served over 20 years on city council, and was the only one ever elected as a write-in.

Swartz put together the celebration in the park festival and other fundraisers.

"Eddie is part of our history. And we still go to him for things in the past. And we thank you Eddie, for your service," said Mayor Jean Ford. "Thank you Harold for your years of volunteer service caring heart, and expert advice."

Both men received standing ovations as they were handed their awards.
