Dave Glassman and Regina LaForge were named the 2019 Outstanding Man and Outstanding Woman at the Bristol Progress Days Banquet Friday.

Each year one man and one woman from Bristol is selected for the honor as a traditional part of the Progress Days community festival.

In his nomination, Glassman was lauded as a longtime pillar of the local business community. He started working in that business at 16 and took over ownership from his father in 1967. At one time, he also ran a milk route and drove a school bus for 20 years. His business sponsored numerous sports teams. He is retired now but continues to serve the community, including as the president of the North Bristol Cemetery.
