"2007 Most Achieved Member"

Gerry Schiller

On October 4, 2007 the Annual Ring 21 Installation Banquet celebrated, among other things, Gerry Schiller being awarded the "2007 Most Achieved Member" award for his continued support as Secretary, photographer and reporter. His excellent coverage of Ring 21 events submitted and subsequently published in the LINKING RING, our international publication has made our Ring enviable and highly visable.

Gerry embodies the very spirit of service to the club, and we are proud to present him with this very special award.

Congratulations to Gerry for this much deserved recognition!
