Mayor Ron Gunter, right, and the Westmont Village Board, provides an honor to longtime Westmont resident, Anne Szymski, with the key to the Village and a proclamation to celebrate her 100th birthday.
“We like to celebrate people who have been influential in the community, and I can’t think of anyone more deserving than Anne Szymski and the entire Szymski family,” Gunter said.
Anne and her husband, Steve, who passed away in 2002, moved to Westmont in 1945 and started many businesses in Westmont, including Westmont Dry Goods Center, Stephen’s Department Store, O.K. Hardware Builders, Family Shoe Store, and Stephen’s Annex Domestics. A video of the meeting can be seen by clicking here.
