Vocational Chair Marvin Hass introduced the program by noting there are over 7500 volunteer opportunities in our community. He quoted Stephen Hawking:
“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. … however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters
that you don't just give up.”

This year’s winner was Phyllis Bolt Bannister, nominated by Mary McNichols. Phyllis instills a love of reading in children. She worked several years with teachers at
Continental School. She leads writing groups (4th grade level) that involve 67 kids writing first-hand answers to the question, “how do I make it?” involving a wide
variety of topics. Her own two kids were adopted, one from India, one from South Korea. Phyllis chose to donate her $100 prize to the Green Valley Food Bank.
Other nominees included:
