League Honors Mason and Saunders
Many people, within and without the League, make it possible for the League to prosper and to make a contribution to the community. Mindful of our debt and our gratitude to all those who contribute so generously, the State Board decided this year to give two awards at Convention, one to our most valuable corporate sponsor and one to our most valuable League member. Both honorees were presented with koa bowls as tokens of our appreciation.
For most valuable corporate sponsor, League honored George Mason of PACIFIC BUSINESS NEWS for his support of the League over the past ten years. Although the League has not had a corporate fund drive every year, Mr. Mason has consistently responded to our need for funds, sending his contribution even in those years when we were not actively fundraising. We are grateful for his support.
For most valuable member, League honored Marion Saunders. Marion's contributions to the League for over 30 years have been far more valuable than any award we can give. A charter member of the Honolulu League in the mid-50's, Marion has worked effectively, and tirelessly, in capacities too numerous to name. Having served two terms on the Board of Education, Marion is probably best-known for her work on behalf of education.
Within the State League she has served several terms on the Board, was active in the Jail Study, and has been the mainstay of our Legislative Action Program. Currently, she is harder at work than ever as co-chair of our Education Study and advocate of our new education position.
There are probably few people in the League who have not been inspired by (or pressed into service by!) Marion. The award that we present is a small token of the gratitude and admiration that we feel for her.
