The Chamber of Commerce sponsors a program to recognized people and businesses within the community. This year the AARP Volunteer Tax Preparers were nominated for the volunteer work (Larry has been helping for the last three years). Last night was the gala event.
I'll say this - the people attending certainly embraced the "Lake County wear anything" idea. There were people in tuxedos and evening gowns. There were people in T-shirts. There were people in denim. There were BADLY dressed people in evening wear. There were well dressed people in every day clothes.
Bottom line - it was very well organized but took way too much time to announce all the recipients.
The AARP Volunteers did receive a Star award for their contributions to the community.
Harry Graves - awesome WWII, Korea and Vietnam war Navy veteran received the Spirit of Lake County Star. Harry is a perpetual motion machine and an asset to humanity.
