2017 – Roger & Connie Hughes

Connie and Roger chose Norwell to raise their family, and they have lived here for almost 45 years.  During that time, they have been very active volunteers in many areas including Norwell Schools and Norwell Town Government.

Connie Hughes volunteered for years as an involved participant of both the Vinal and Sparrell Schools Parent Organizations. She was also a member of The Friends of the Norwell VNA; assisting in running events such as: The Holly Trail House Tour, the Haunted House, The Fashion Show, Breakfast with Santa, the Golf Tournament, and the Town Fair booth, just to name a few! More recently, she has volunteered for the Cancer Support Community by helping to run the Festival of Wreaths fundraising event. While she was raising their three children, Connie gave much of her time to our Norwell Town Government by spending consecutive terms on the Advisory Board, and she spent six years on the Norwell Board of Selectman as well.

Roger Hughes has served on the Norwell Board of Health, the Conservation Commission, and ultimately as the Town Moderator for almost 30 years.  He has been a member the Advisory Board for the past three years, and he is currently the Chairman. Roger has offered his time as the Ex Officio Moderator of the Senior Tax Relief Committee appointed by the Selectmen. He has been a strong supporter of the Norwell Public Schools, the Norwell High Booster Organization, the Norwell Visiting Nurse Association, and most recently the Norwell VNA Cancer Support Community. He has been a Youth Soccer Coach, the Spelling Bee Moderator at the Cole School annual fundraiser, and he served as the Coach for the Mock Trial Team for Norwell High School for years.

Roger and his daughter Caroline practice law together in Norwell as well.

Both Connie and Roger are dedicated to the town of Norwell, and have spent many weekend hours on town fields and courts watching their three children, and now five grandchildren play sports. They both love this town, and the people in it. Connie and Roger Hughes have been strongly committed to the community since the day they moved to Norwell in 1973, and they continue to be committed today.
