Celebrating community and honoring volunteers was the focus of Keep Golden Isles Beautiful’s recent Volunteer Recognition breakfast. With a staff of just two, the 40+ year-old educational non-profit depends on volunteer effort, community/government partners and financial supporters to further community betterment activities, projects and initiatives. Ten community volunteer and partner awards were presented for the calendar year 2022: Community Partner of the Year/Non-Profit, The Torras Foundation; Community Partner of the Year/Profit, Savannah Bee Company; Outstanding Public Service/City Government, Garrow Alberson; Outstanding Public Service/County Government, Paul Andrews; Outstanding Elected Official, Glynn County Commissioner Walter Rafolski; Environmental Steward of the Year, Mara Lockard; Horizon Award, Geoffrey Gable, Jr.; Shining Star Award, Iglesia Aventista Del Septimo Dia; Hindery Adopt-A-Highway Volunteer of the Year Award, Dazzlin Divaz Social Club; Bootsie Mason Award of Excellence, Dawn Franco. Each recipient received a custom-made award hand crafted from scrap wood and bicycle parts created by Terry Trowbridge.
