Raised on a farm, Lions Club member Dennis Hafer spoke about living in the small Bally community. He discussed past jobs and organizations where he learned the things that made him the man is is today.
“I’ve done nothing special. I have just been part of organizations that are very special,” Hafer said. “I accept this award on behalf of them.”
Hafer thanked his wife Audrey and received a standing ovation.
In his final comments, to sum up the night, Jim Davidheiser quoted Nelson Mandela, “There is no passion to be found playing small — in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
