ATTENTION READERS -- You may have been lucky enough last night to get on this site while most of the photos and story were "working." By midnight the entire story and all of its photos were eliminlated in total by a stray, gremlin-like code which prevented them from being seen or accessible by the site manager. They became temporarily "lost." We believe we have now recovered 100% of what was lost and are seeking to fill in any remaining blanks. Here is a summary:

Receiving Silent Hero framed Award Certificates were: Charlie Nunnenberg, Suzanne Trich Bristow, Jill Knitter, Lisa Schiske, and Greg Franklin.

A New Award, the Good Neighbor Award, was awarded to Sue Russell, the Director of the Asbury Retreat Center.

Charlie was nominated and introduced by Cindy and Tom Adams. Suzanne Trich Bristow was nominated by Nancy Culley Sellar. Jill Knitter was nominated and introduced by Loren Penman. Lisa Schiske was nominated and introduced by Dick Lee and Mollie Anthony. Greg Franklin was nominated and introduced by Lisa Schiske. Sue Russell was nominated and introduced by Kathy and Bill Schaefer.

Sharon Pratt, chair of the Epworth Hall Committee, stood right before closing, and announced that special thanks needs to be offered to Bill Schaefer for all he has done and all the time committed for the Silver Lake Institute. She was very warmly applauded.
