The annual E-Club dinner and scholarship awards night was a great success.
It was a great success because it was dignified, the food was great, the speeches were all to the point, and the honors bestowed on young men and women is the stuff to remember fondly for a lifetime.
About 200 people attended the gala.
To our way of looking at it, School Department Administrative Assistant Gina Gennette, who was honored for her year in and year out effort to help out the E Club, delivered a remarkable speech.
She touched the hearts and minds of everyone there with her passionate but measured speech with words of praise for her colleagues, the community, the kids and the schools.
Gina Gennette added a special panache to the awards dinner.
She received a great ovation.
