On January 20th, 2021, the Oregon Region PCA celebrated one of our club’s special events, the Annual Awards Banquet. This is a celebration of volunteers’ special achievements that occurred this past year and an opportunity to meet our 2021 Board of Directors. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, our club’s president, Steve Miller, hosted the event on Zoom while 13 fortunate members got to attend in person.
Since many of last year’s events were cancelled or postponed, only two of the perpetual awards were given:
New Member of the Year Award
Given to John and Sally Savona, for enthusiastically participating in many of last year’s activities.
Given to Greg and Kaylene Kirchem, for their 10 years of work on the Northwest Passage event. Greg led this effort for the last five years.
The plaque was presented in person to Greg and Kaylene by Steve and Larry prior to the dinner.
Above and Beyond
Steve then recognized a group of 37 volunteers who went Above and Beyond to get events going in 2020. These volunteers were given a personalized “Above and Beyond” Beer Stein for their work.
