 Award Winners

June 2020

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 we were unable to have an awards ceremony to recognize our 2020 Award Winners.  We were very fortunate that our local paper, The Daily Star, produced an insert for their paper that recognized all of our award winners.  We are very proud of all our winners and of the product that The Daily Star gave us.
