Henrico PAL honors supporters
The Henrico Police Athletic League held its fourth annual awards banquet Feb. 7 at The Cultural Arts Center of Glen Allen to celebrate its accomplishments and honor the contributions of its 2012 award winners. Former NFL head coach Bobby Ross served as keynote speaker, while Henrico County Juvenile Domestic Court Judge Denis Soden served as the master of ceremony.
Honorees, pictured above, left to right, were (standing) Carol Wilson-King (2012 Employee of the Year), Chanay Taylor (2012 Employee of the Year), Sergeant Kenneth Ragland (five years of service to the program), Kennedy Goldsborough (2012 Youth of the Year), Louise Whitehead (2012 Volunteer of the Year), Don Blake (2012 Board Member of the Year); and (sitting) Kevin Roye, Henrico Assistant Director of Pupil Transportation (significant contribution to the summer camps), Lori Carter-Evans , Henrico Director of Pupil Transportation (significant contribution to the summer camps), and Virgil Hazelett, former Henrico County manager (significant contribution and support).
On June 13, the Short Pump Rotary Club partnered with Schnabel Engineering for a day of volunteer work with Rebuilding Together Richmond. Team members (among them [from left] Chris Rufe, Melissa Abraham, Rick Naschold, and Micky Ogburn) completed a variety of repairs and home improvements ranging from painting and landscaping to cabinet installation and fence building.
“It was a privilege to be involved in this project," said club president Melissa Abraham. "The homeowner kept thanking the volunteers, but I think all of us would agree we are the ones who actually benefited. It was an opportunity to help a community member, fellowship with great people and improve our handyman skills." > Read more.
