Helendale 2013 Community Service Awards Handed Out

The Helendale Community Service Awards for 2013, were held on January 25, 2014 at the Silver Lakes Association Clubhouse with a Mardi Gras theme entitled, “The Many Faces of Volunteers”. It was all about naming the Man/Woman/Student/Couple and Business of the Year with CSA Chair Julie Garland as Mistress of Ceremony, supported by the Helendale Chamber of Commerce President Tom Kirk and SLA Ledger/Shopper News Editor and KQTE Radio Personality, Jaime Earl.

The community of Silver Lakes nominated people whom they thought deserved any one of those titles with a CSA Committee of 10 selecting the top three in each of five categories and then later, by secret ballot choosing a top recipient per category.

Each of the top recipients received $500 for a local charity of their choice, plus the student received a $1,000 scholarship. The top recipients are: Man of the Year, Spencer Thompson; Woman of the Year, Marta Kraemer; Student of the Year, Marisa Ratchford; and Couple of the Year, Bill and Jodi Dodson.
