"2008 Most Achieved Member"

Wendy Sobel

On October 2, 2008 the Annual Ring 21 Installation Banquet celebrated, among other things, Wendy Sobel being awarded the "2008 Most Achieved Member" award for her unwavering support as the editor of our monthly newsletter, The Fleming Flashpaper. Her exuberance and enthusiasm for and about Ring 21 and its members is enviable and highly appreciated.

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

Congratulations to Wendy for this much deserved recognition!
