Wow, was presented with this wonderful award. I didn’t do the things I did for credit or appreciation, I did what I did because I care and because someone had to get things done. Being recognized and honored with this award by the whole community was unexpected and very rewarding. Having our local Senator, Councilman and Assemblyman express their recognition of my contributions, I will admit, is a really humbling experience.
