Super Sunday Recognition Dinner
Well, Here We are continuing an awesome year, We call 2007.
And on Sunday January 21, 2007 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 The Brand New 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, Vietnam Veteran of The Year,
Educator or teacher of The Year and a Community Service
This Year's honors went to Officer Jason Stein for Police Officer of The year,
Lt. Richard brown for Firefighter of the Year, Retired Cpl. Joseph J. Mazarka, United States marine Corps, Anna Revell from Lyle School, for Indian Springs School District #109 Educator of The Year and Mary Denson for The Community Service Award. Also at The event The Bridgeview Lions honored Retiring Fire Chief Terrance Lipinski with a special award.
Also honored at the luncheon was The Bridgeview Senior Citizens,
Golden Agers and St. Fabian's Senior Citizens. United States Congressman Daniel Lipinski made a special appearance and presentation at the event.
A first for this event 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.
The Master of ceremonies as is every year and again in My opinion another
one of the highlights for the ceremony, was Charter Bridgeview Lions Club Member and Bridgeview Auxiliary Police Officer Ray Jachim. Ray does an awesome job and even tied in his remarks to the Bears Game later that afternoon, as they would later win the NFC Championship against the New Orleans Saints to get into the Super bowl. Also at this event was a yummy luncheon, which included Italian Beef, Grilled Chicken, My favorites curly Q Pasta Salad and much more.
