Corky Jarrett wins annual George Bailey Award

Despite her reluctance to be in the spotlight, Corky Jarrett will have her moment to shine.

Jarrett will be the 16th annual recipient of the George Bailey Award as part of this year’s It’s A Wonderful Life Festival. Karolyn Grimes, the actress who played Zuzu Bailey in the 1946 Frank Capra classic, “It’s A Wonderful Life,” will present the award at 10 a.m. Dec. 14 at Trinity Episcopal Church.

The public is encouraged to attend, especially those whose lives have been touched by Jarrett in some way.

A Seneca Falls resident for more than 50 years, she is well-known for her volunteer efforts, including work for the Seneca County Community Christmas Project, the School Supply Project, the Coats for Kids Project and the St. Francis-St. Clare Parish Nicaragua Mission Project.
