The big moment of the event was the awarding of the I. Lawrence Camp Volunteer of the Year Award. The award went to Connie Speck, who has been a volunteer at Sangamon Auditorium for 7 years. Connie’s nomination forms, submitted by fellow volunteers, included comments such as: “She is very personable and interested in people”; “Always willing to help at any time and always smiling”; “She steps forward and does whatever is needed without hesitation”; “Always on time and ready to fulfill her duties”; and “Her positive attitude is obvious and a real attribute to the Auditorium”. Our many thanks go to Connie for her outstanding service to the University and the Auditorium.
Volunteers recognized for completing 25 years of service were Charlie Becker, Wayne Huckabee, and Shirley McConnaughay.
Summer is a great time to join our volunteer corps; new volunteers can participate in annual training in August and join us as ushers beginning with the fall season. Please call the SAVA hotline at 206-8288 to indicate your interest, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or simply mark your calendar and plan to attend one of the two New Usher trainings scheduled for August:
Each session will be approximately 2 ½ - 3 hours in length and begins in the Sangamon Auditorium lobby. New volunteers need only attend *one* of the two sessions. Thanks to our many volunteers who have already encouraged their friends to join us. Word of mouth is our best way to recruit new volunteers!
