Congratulations to Inland Hospital president and EMHS senior vice president John Dalton and his wife, Jackie.  The Daltons were honored earlier this month with the “Central Maine Citizen Award” from the Kennebec Valley District Boy Scouts for their many years of service to the greater Waterville area.

Congressman Bruce Poliquin (R-Me) thanked the Daltons for their dedication to the region, “Central Maine is blessed to have John and Jackie so involved and working to strengthen our community.” As the 2016 Citizen Award recipient, Charlie Gaunce from Central Maine Motor Auto Group, presented the 2017 award to the Daltons.

John, who is also a proud Eagle Scout, is very active in his community. He chairs the Kennebec Valley Community College Foundation, and is a member and past chair of the board of directors of the Central Maine Growth Council, a member of the board of directors of Waterville Creates!, served on  the board of directors of the Waterville Development Corporation, and is a member of Waterville Rotary. John chaired the United Way of Mid-Maine’s Annual Campaign in 2008.

Jackie Dalton is co-executive director of REM (Revitalize the Energy in ME), serves on the board of directors of Kennebec Messalonskee Trails (currently its secretary), Waterville Main Street, the United Way of Mid-Maine, and is a member of the Friends of the Maine Children’s Home for Little Wanderers.

The couple received the Mid-Maine Chamber’s Distinguished Community Service Award in 2015.

The Daltons live in Winslow and have two grown children, Andy who is an Eagle Scout and Abby who is a recipient of the Girl Scout Gold Award.  They have three grandchildren who are the joy of their lives.      

“This is our home,” John says. “We are proud to be part of this amazing community.” Jackie adds, “Being involved in our community is a joy and a responsibility.” Both note a personal satisfaction from helping build a stronger community.

Please join us in congratulating John and Jackie Dalton for their exceptional community service!
