Former Water and Sewer Commissioner David Montambeault began the program and introduced Sunapee State Representative Sue Gottling, who presented to each a citation from Governor John Lynch.

A plaque installed acknowledges “the visionary stewardship and prudent management” of the three former commissioners.

Gordon Ramspott served as a commissioner from 1955 to 1998 and “was specially knowledgeable about the hydro power operation that connects Lake Sunapee and the Sunapee Water Treatment Facility on Burkehaven Hill.”

Ron Wyman, “always a thoughtful voice of reason.” served from 1971 to 2001.  “Along with his knowledge of building materials and construction methods, (he) insured that Sunapee received the highest return on the infrastructure investments.”

Bill Roach, commissioner from 1972 to 1999, was recognized for “his knowledge of municipal finance to help Sunapee qualify for grants and loans, and invest funds for future projects.”

The plaque further states,”Under the watchful leadership of these Commissioners: the Sunapee Sewer Treatment Plant was constructed providing municipal sewer for Georges Mills, Oak Ridge, Wendell, Sunapee and New London; two water treatment plants, a water tank and miles of water lines were constructed to serve Sunapee and Georges Mills; and, funds were set aside to help finance future upgrades.”

Additional awards were presented to the three from the Sunapee Fire Department.
