This past Sunday, volunteers, staff and dedicated visitors gathered together at the Breakers in Spring Lake to celebrate all those who make Allaire Village possible! It was a wonderful afternoon filled with heartwarming speeches, discussions, and reunions. During the luncheon we had the wonderful opportunity to give awards to some of our most dedicated Villagers who went above and beyond during the 2013 season!
Lauren and Dara both received 2014 Allaire Village scholarships! Lauren is a senior at Howell High School, Dara is a senior at Manasquan High School, and both will be attending 4 year colleges in the fall. Both Lauren & Dara are long time members of the Village, and are Guild Masters who are masters of their crafts and mentors to new volunteers. Congrats to you both!!
Our 2013 Youth Volunteers of the Year are Tessa and Einar (not pictured)! Both began volunteering in early 2013 and have since become vital and valuable members of the Village! Both have shown an incredible interest and knowledge in history and are wonderful role-models to volunteers of all ages!
Our 2013 Guild of the Year Award goes to REACT! REACT acts as transport, security, and essential support to our Village during events. While the team is small, they are truly the heart and soul of the Village! Pictured are John Hall, Harold Wheeden, and Olivia Woodward.
The 2013 Guild Master Award goes to Raymond O’Grady! Ray is the Tinsmith Guild Master as well as a longtime volunteer and member of the Board of Trustees. We couldn’t think of a more well-deserving recipient!
The 2013 Volunteer of the Year award goes to our Chairman of the Board, William Gerhauser! He has devoted (literally) countless hours to the Village over the years and is the embodiment of volunteer dedication.
Thank you to ALL of our amazing volunteers, staff and visitors! Can’t wait for another year of fun!
