Zone Recognizes Jeff Sargent
The Colonies Zone named Jeff Sargent from Connecticut LMSC as the 2016 Dorothy Donnelly Service Award recipient. Jeff stepped in to become the Connecticut LMSC Chair when no one else was interested. Under his leadership, membership grew and became more active. He encouraged his group, engaging more local and national volunteer participation, and creating a sense of pride throughout the LMSC.
