MOUNT VERNON — Four employees of Country Club Retirement Campus were honored Monday night by Mount Vernon City Council for their efforts to assist Councilman Jay Maners when he was injured while working at CCRC on July 1.
According to the proclamation presented, Maners hit his head on his work vehicle while loading a power lift at CCRC. He was assisted by Angie Lang, Teresa Crescimanno, Tia Ball and Laura Wood to stop the bleeding from a gash on his head. He was then driven to his family physician where he received stitches.
“Instead of calling 9-1-1, you helped me move on with my hectic day,” Maners said as he presented the women with the official proclamation and flowers.
