As some of you are aware, PCA National broadcasted the yearly National Awards on You Tube last night. If you weren't watching here's how the Appalachian Region fared...
First I would like to recognize our Past President, Peter Graham, who did a superb job of putting together this year's APR Award submissions. Thanks for your hard work Peter.
Our Webmaster, Dick Maybach, scored again winning the 3rd place award for best Website in our Region size category. Dick's work on the website in 2017 earned us a similar trophy. We are still looking for a backup team to someday replace all that Dick does for APR!
The big win this year for the Appalachian Region is the overall First Place Trophy and Award for Public Service. A big thank you to all APR members who have contributed to our Region's charitable work and donation efforts. A special thank you goes out to David Butler, who not only organizes our charitable work crew at MANNA, but is always involved in the volunteer and fundraising efforts of the Region.
If you would like to view the half hour YouTube video of the awards, you can find it here.
My personal thanks to our old and new members who make our young Region a great Club to belong to!
Don Therien, President
