This year’s Hulan Aars Lifetime Achievement award went to Sally and Rick Douglas for their tireless efforts to enhance Clifton through their participating in the Economic Development Corporation, the Chamber of Commerce Board, the Bosque Arts Center, supporting public projects and renovating downtown buildings, all while running a real estate business.

“Clifton has more service-above-self, community-minded, plain old, good people per capita, which makes choosing the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award difficult,” Phyllis Gamble said in her introduction of the couple. “I could go on and on about the many ways they have contributed to this community. In short, they worked hard and left things better than they found it.”

According to Gamble they serve, volunteer, give, organize and help some more.

“This place is unbelievable,” Rick said in his thank you speech. “In our minds, it is the most special place in the world. We are honored and a bit embarrassed to receive this award. We love you, and we love this community.”

Similar to the Hulan Aars Award, the Community Service Award differs in that it can be bestowed onto people that have resided in Clifton for less than two decades.

“We were taught as children, and we taught our children to ‘just say no,” Tom Henderson said in his introductory speech about the 2020 Community Service Award recipient, Drew Leigh. “But to continue to improve this community in Clifton, we have to learn to say yes.

“It takes people like this, which keep this great community as it is.”

Leigh has served on the Chamber Board, the Horse Show Association Board, the Clifton EDC, the Lions Club, assisted in running the concession stand, and helped organize a CASA fundraiser.

Leigh feels that community comes first, but said he could not have done anything without his great family support.
