Sherry is a very generous contributor to the Foundation. She has had some changes in her life that makes  attending meeting more difficult, therefore; sadly, Sherry will not be renewing her membership. 
 
Dan Diamon presented special award to the dynamic duo, sisters Hannah Schoechert and Robyn Schoechert Lings. These young woman repeatedly  step forward to volunteer and bring new ideas and energy to every project.
Dan Diamon presented the first - EVER, "Saving our Bacon" Award to Charlie Johnson. When the President nominee and 2018 Lake Superior Dragon Boat Festival Co-chair could not fulfill those obligations, Charlie Johnson stepped up and accepted both of those huge roles. Thanks Charlie, indeed you did save our bacon!
