Hall of Fame

In 2014 our President, Paulette Braga, initiated recognition for the Member of the Year Award. This award recognizes a member who has contributed outstanding service and commitment to our Chaper throughout that calendar year.


In 2018 our President, Lou Burns, initiated the Hall of Fame to recognize members who have contributed outstanding service and commitment to our Chaper over a sustained period of consecutive years.


This page is dedicated to our many volunteers, both named and unnamed.
