Al and JoAnn were honored for their many years of service to foster care. Larry administered life-saving CPR to a man who was in distress at a Knights of Columbus dinner and Michael who made two attempts to rescue his disabled brother from their burning home was able to direct fire crews to his brother’s location when they arrived.
