Well, Here We are continuing an awesome year, We call 2008. And on Sunday January 20, 2008 The Bridgeview Lions Club and the village of Bridgeview were putting on a fantastic event. Every Year The Bridgeview Lions Club has their annual Appreciation Awards and Super Sunday Recognition Dinner. On this cold Sunday Afternoon at Toyota Park, home to The Chicago Fire Soccer team, The Bridgeview Lions Club and The Village of Bridgeview jointly put on a program that will warm Your heart and keep You warm and toasty inside, even though it is cold outside.
At this Appreciation Awards Luncheon The Bridgeview Lions Club honored a Police Officer of The Year, Firefighter of the Year, Veteran of The Year, Educator or teacher of The Year and Iraq Veteran of The War. This Yearís honors went to Investigator Carl Michalski for Police Officer of The year, Engineer Rich Schmitt for Firefighter of the Year, Private First Class James H Ebbers for Army Veteran of The Year (Posthumous), Victoria Supalla from Lyle School, for Indian Springs School District #109 Educator of The Year and Private First Bobby Lamarche for Iraq Army Veteran of The Year.

Again for the second year at this event there was excellent performance by The Indian Springs District #109 Junior School Band. My personal opinion this band gave a awesome performance beyond the typical Junior High School Band.
Also for The second Year was the posting of the colors and Pledge of Allegiance by Boy Scout Troop 13.
New this Year was a great performance by Church of God Choir Group.
The Master of ceremonies as is every year and again in My opinion one of the highlights for the ceremony, was Charter Bridgeview Lions Club Member Ray Jachim.
Also at this event was a yummy luncheon, which included Italian Beef, Grilled Chicken, My favorites curly Q Pasta Salad and much more.
