At the 141st Annual Meeting, Executive Director Julie Richard announced that Andrew Spacone would receive the Steere House Legacy Award. Andrew will be honored at this year's Autumn's Promise Event on September 30th. Serving as Board President since 2010, Andrew recently stepped down, yet he will remain on the Board. Andrew will also be profiled in our upcoming Summer Newsletter, coming out in August.
The Legacy Award was established in 2011 to encourage and honor an individual or corporation for their achievements and contributions through public and community service, especially in the areas of health, social services and the elderly, as well as to inspire volunteering in Rhode Island. The Award winner must demonstrate selfless and extraordinary contributions for the betterment of a local community or organization. The Award winner is selected from one of three categories: Greatest Public Service by an Elected or Appointed Official; Greatest Public Service by a Private Citizen; or Greatest Public Service by a Corporation. Eligibility includes volunteers as well as paid professionals who go well above and beyond their expected service.
