SPENCER — Harold and Gayle Rabon won the Albert Stout Award during the Spencer Community Appearance Commission’s annual awards banquet.
The Rabons, who live on Charles Street in Spencer, were among 16 residents and businesses honored during the awards ceremony Thursday at the Spencer Woman’s Club for making an effort to keep Spencer beautiful.
The Rabons’ names are on a plaque with seven previous award winners, displayed in Town Hall.
