The League of Women Voters of Radnor Township held its annual luncheon on Tuesday at the Overbrook Golf Club.

This year it awarded its Civic Participation Award to Garrett Hill resident Sara Pilling, who, among many volunteer efforts, helped found and runs the Skunk Hollow Community Garden in Radnor Township.

"She had a vision for Radnor residents to create community there," Katrina Ogilby said of Pilling. Calling her a "dynamo" and "inspiration," Ogilby said Pilling is the community garden's architect, COO, accountant and "diplomat."

"The garden would be nowhere without Sara," she said.

Pilling also worked on the cause to save the Willows Cottage, worked on the RainGarden LWV WREN grant for Macrone Park, and helped in the effort to “Save Garrett Hill.”

The luncheon's speaker was Sam Katz, a former politician and now documentary filmmaker.

A well deserved award for Sara. Her picture should be in the dictionary next to the word "Citizen". Thanks for all that you do.
