Congratulations Sylvia Dill Memorial Award
In 1990, a memorial award was established to honor Sylvia Dill, a charter member of the Verdoy Volunteer Fire Association Auxiliary. Sylvia and her husband Howard were both instrumental in the beginning stages of the fire department. Sylvia volunteered at church, local organizations and at Verdoy. We have given this award to the auxiliary members that have followed in Sylvia’s footsteps.
This year’s recipient has been very dedicated since joining the auxiliary. She participates in most of our functions including Brooks Barbeque, pancake breakfasts and Fire Prevention Week. She has taken charge of all publicity for functions, even Breakfast with Santa. When the babysitting class was left with no one to chair, she took the reins and organized the successful fall class. She reinstituted our Election Day Bake Sale making it profitable for 2 years of important charities by doing a lot of extra baking. She has been an officer for 2 years and helps with Historian duties.
She participates in her church. She is a busy Mom raising her son and taking care of a busy husband. Sylvia would be proud of this year’s recipient, Rina Reynolds.
