Today I was honored at a luncheon held at the Hilton Netherland Plaza downtown. It was really a nice honor. I received the medal with the blue and white ribbon pictured above. Two years ago I received the medal on the right.
On the left is a copy of the narrative in the program.
One of the reasons I'm so interested in submitting our family history to the Genealogical Society is that they will eventually digitize the entire record and donate it to the Historical Society. This would mean that even if all of my records were lost, they would be available for our ancestors should one of our descendants want to research our family.
Bill attended with me and photographed most of the pictures. He was able to capture this one as they gave me a framed certificate and a medal.
