The Penny Award
The Nashua Actorsingers was proud to establish the "Penny" award in 1978. This award was created to honor members of the Actorsingers who have served above and beyond the call of duty. It is with deep pride that the Actorsingers announced, at that time, the first recipient of the "Penny Award" was Mrs. Margaret (Penny) Tamulonis.
The Actorsingers was extremely proud to have Penny Tamulonis as an active and dedicated member of their group, and we hope that she inspired others to aspire to achieve the "Penny Award".
The plaques include a Lincoln penny for the year of the award, the name of the recipient, the phrase "recipient of the Actorsingers," then the date, then "Penny Award" and the phrase "for constant personal commitment to the organization"
Historically The Penny Award was selected by a committee which was always chaired by Penny Tamulonis herself and included (depending upon availability) the last one or two award recipients.
Since the passing of Penny Tamulonis in 2009 the Penny Award is selected by a committee of the most recent 5 Penny Award winners.
