Eagles announce Mother of the Year


NAUGATUCK — Maryellen Pec of Prospect has been chosen as The Fraternal Order of Eagles’ 2014 Mother of the Year. 

Pec will be honored at a ceremony on Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Aerie Home on High Street in Naugatuck. She will also be appearing in the Memorial Day parade on May 26.

Pec’s son, Michael and her friend, Kristine, sent in the letter nominating Maryellen for the award. They stated her acts of kindness and patience with a son who had extreme medical problems. With all the difficulties of being a single mother of two boys, she has always instilled in them being the best that they can be and giving back to the community any way they can.
