Although we did not have a chance to have an awards banquet this year, we were able to celebrate our chapter volunteers in a special way. Each winner received a personalized video announcement of their award, in advance of their etched acrylic award arriving at their home through the mail. We thank each of them for their service to our membership and for their help in making our chapter strong and active.
