Library Volunteers Honored on 29 March

Each year the Largo Library honors the many volunteers who contribute time and effort to supporting the library's programs and services. The PGS has many voluteers who participate in doing that as consultants, adopt-a-state volunteers, instructors, and members of the library coordination committee.

This year twenty-three of our volunteers attended the appreciation breakfast on 29 March. Two of our members, Bill Fawcett and Ben Schulz were selected as Genealogy Library Volunteers of the Year. They serve as consultants on Wednesday evenings and have been genealogy volunteers at the library since the early 1990's.

The picture shows the PGS attendees, with the awardees seated in the front. Seated next to Bill and Ben is Betty Adkins, who was the recipient of this years Unsung Researcher Award which was presented at the annual seminar in February. Library Director Casey McPhee joined the group for the picture and is standing in the back row at the right.

All of our volunteers are deserving of our gratitude and support. It is through their efforts that the PGS enjoys its excellent reputation and continues to offer quality services to genealogists across the county.
