Executive Director Jim Holtsclaw presented this Award to John Kemper #2251 at his home in Torrance, California. The event was sponsored by his immediate family and included a luncheon with a champagne toast to the honoree. Following the Award Ceremony, is John's response "I'm just now coming down to earth. It's strange, but since it was not a surprise, I had planned to say a few words. But in the magic of the moment, I forgot what I had planned to say. That rarely happens.'

'I can truly say that I was overwhelmed. It is such an honor and so satisfying to be recognized for my work after all these years. And what a outstanding trophy! I am truly humbled by the award, but ever so grateful.' 'Please convey my sincere gratitude to the Board for their kindness. I'm still pinching myself."

Further details including the Award itself will be in the 2009 Annual.
