The K. Julie McCarthy Community Spirit Awards
The Community Spirit Awards were introduced by Preservation Massachusetts in 2010 as a way to recognize those who embody the spirit of community based historic preservation activities in our Commonwealth.  These individual and groups are committed to their communities and are active in efforts to therein to preserve buildings, character or expand the preservation ethic.  Their efforts and work are models for others to emulate in our community and can often go unrecognized, and to that end we are proud to be able to honor them and their achievements. 
Preservation Massachusetts re-named this award in 2016 in honor of the late K. Julie McCarthy, founder and president of the Friends of the North Brookfield Town House.  Julie’s boundless energy and years as an educator served her well as she and the Friends worked toward the restoration of an iconic community landmark.  Upon her passing in March of 2016, the preservation community lost a dear friend but her infectious energy, friendship and legacy will continue on in the group and their mission for the Townhouse.  Julie was truly the embodiment of our Community Spirit Award.
