Congratuations to Lion Stan on receiving Bloomingdale School District 13's most prestigious award~The Community Exemplar Award.  As Lion Bill so eloquently stated, "Exemplar can be found in the actions of an individual who acts in such a way as to put their own interests or needs aside in order to perform an act from which they themselves have nothing to gain in the immediate future to contribute to the greater good of others, community or society and you [Lion Stan] exmplify all that."  Congratulations to Lion Stan and thank you for your compassion, honesty, and dedication to the Lions Club and to the community.
