SYRACUSE — The Syracuse Community Center recently honored Joyce Sisson for her dedicated efforts to fund raising which made possible construction of a new shelter house, named in honor of her late husband, Ernie Sisson, and the purchase of equipment for the playground area.

She was presented a plaque in appreciation by John Bentley, president of the Syracuse Community Center Association. A second plaque was made for display at the Center.

The plaques read:

The Syracuse Community Center appreciates Joyce Sission for her unwavering dedication, desire and ability in providing financial support through fund raising activities. Her contributions have been enjoyed and utilized by all whose paths have crossed the Syracuse Community Center. Thanks for the shelter, the playground, and the continual support of these facilities for the Syracuse community.

In announcing the awarding of a plaque to Sisson, Bentley expressed his appreciation for her work.

“The Syracuse Community Center is very fortunate in having her on its Board of Directors and appreciates her dedication to the Center,” said Bentley.

Over the years, Sisson has worked diligently to raise money for improvements to the Center. A primary fund raiser has been basket games.
