Karl has been loyal there, devoting 19 years of service. Karl was given a lovely handtied quilt made by Virginia VanPatten, an employee of the Center. Karl served in the Army in Korea.
Samuel Banz came to volunteer at the SSCC in April of 1997. At that time, he was employed as a greeter for Wal-Mart and also worked as a Crossing Guard for the Nebo School District. Sam has been faithful and attentive to the older members of the community over the past 17 years. He has also collected bakery items from Honey Grains Bakery and Hill’s Bakery at Reams. This has been a great service to the community. Sam served in the Army in WWll and was in the famous Battle of the Bulge.
The SSC Center honored the men with a lunch and a chocolate dip party with lots of good things to cover with chocolate, including pretzels, marshmallows and cinnamon bears.
