in 2007, we received the Jefferson Award for Public Service. Ever since, we get invited to the annual awards ceremony at the beautiful Herbst Theater -- inspiring presentations about fellow citizens working on a wide range of issues. Brings tears to the eyes every year. K-CBS Anchor Kate Kelly does a terrific job as hostess. Then we go upstairs to the Green Room for a lovely reception with all the awardees and their friends and family. With a great view out the balcony of our illuminated City Hall.
Here's Judith and me (in Turkmen coat). We've got 10 fingers up because we've been at this project for 10 tears. I think Judith and I met at the knitting group at the New Main Library. Thank you, Judith, for all your dedication! No one inspects socks like Judith.
You can get a sense of how grand the Green Room is when you realize that we're standing in front of the pedestal of a Classical column.
