Ann Merrifield was recognized as the first quarter Ambassador of the Quarter and Cathy Cook as Emeritus Ambassador of the Quarter.
Gary Duncan and Joe Ritter received their 100-point pin, Cathy Cook earned her 1,000 certificate (and will have a tree dedication for that milestone in the future), Jim Cherrington earned his 2,500 point certificate and Wally Pfeffer earned his 4,000 point certificate — the second highest lifetime total in the Ambassador history.
Thanks to the good folks at Simon Oswald Architecture for hosting this special celebration.
