I want to thank everyone involved with making the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Awards a festive event. Debi Bray and the chamber staff and its board of directors thought of the many details to make the event unique. The Madera Tribune staff and publisher had extraordinary coverage and added to the elegance of the occasion. As always, Madera Community Hospital catering served a tasty meal.
There were student helpers and scholarship recipients who along with a lively crowd of family, friends and supporters, added to the spirited flavor of the evening. It is wonderful to have people dedicated to keeping our community together and to help us be proud to be part of Madera.
