Storks receive top award from chamber

KEUKA PARK—Keuka College’s Geiser Refectory was transformed for the celebration of the Yates County Chamber of Commerce annual dinner dance and silent auction.
The highlight of the evening was the awards presentation. Three awards were presented at the event, two with a long history and one that was new last year.
The Norman Snow, Jr. Memorial Spirit Award was presented to long time chamber of commerce members Don and Corry Stork. This award was created to honor the memory of a chamber member who served on the board of directors. Chamber president Mike Linehan said, “Talk about spirit. He believed in this community and immersed himself in different opportunities to serve.” Before announcing the winners of the award, Linehan said, “Every single person in this room has been touched by the spirit this couple brings to this community.” Linehan read a lengthy list of their varied community involvement and awards, noting the Yates Cultural and Recreational Resources, Inc. is one of their top interests at this time.
Linehan began with presentation of the Director of the Year Award. Board member Earl Makatura of Spring Wagon Orchards was the recipient of this year’s honor. Prior to announcement of the award, Linehan said, “He’s a relative newcomer, but has jumped in with both feet.”
The second award, and the newest, was been named in honor of former executive director Emily Seager who died in 2008. Linehan recalled that Seager had a certain amount of pride in the community and this year’s recipient, “Exemplifies his pride in his community. He has dealt with the community with honesty, integrity and pride. He has worked with community members to keep this a great place to live.” Bob Multer, who has served on the Yates County Legislature for many years, most recently as chairman, and is supervisor of the town of Middlesex, was named recipient of the Emily Seager Memorial Award.
At the conclusion of the program, Linehan offered a promise the audience, “Bright lights are on the horizon for Yates County.”
