The 43rd Clifton Chamber of Commerce Banquet
During the 43rd Annual Chamber Banquet on Saturday night, February 23rd, Bob and Marge Schafer were honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award, introduced by Brian Davis. In my many years of friendship and working with this couple, I can't think of anyone who has given more tirelessly and unselfishly of their time and talents to this community.
Phyllis Gamble presented the Hulen C. Aars Community Service Award to Tim Talley who for 30 years, if it happened in Clifton or if something was going on that was good for Clifton or if in some way something was presented that potentially was going to help make Clifton even better, Tim Talley was part of it.
