the day and together with members of his family put together a great
picnic with great food that was provided through Trawka’s Catering

was a tribute to our outstanding group o volunteers. Every year since we
started the volunteers’ celebration we have singled out our most
outstanding members. This year we honored our top three volunteers who
have given so much of their time to work on club events and projects.
They were Joe Springer, Bob Zawadzki and Larry Lipinski. These three men
were presented with a personalized guide shirt with the SONS logo in
grateful appreciation of their outstanding work.
We also honored 65 more of our volunteers all who have helped out more than six times throughout the year. They were given a SONS thirty fifth anniversary commemorative sweatshirt.
