MORGANTOWN — Sunday, June 29, is a banner birthday for Sy Dinardi.

Sy, a longtime community volunteer, turns 90 that day.

March-Westin workers on the University Park project that faces his house on Oakland Street unfurled their well-wishes early, though.

On Friday, June 27, they hung a banner from the top floor reading, “HAPPY 90TH BIRTHDAY SY DINARDI” — since no crews will be working that day.

Matt McMillian, a March-Westin project manager, said that was in honor and appreciation of Sy, who drops off bottled waters to work crews while also dispensing good-natured ribbing.

“Sy keeps us honest,” McMillian said.

“I never expected this,” Dinardi said, as he grinned and shook his head.
