Lynn Sherwood Lighthouse Leadership Award
We are proud to celebrate Midge Verplank, the recipient of this year's Lynn Sherwood Lighthouse Leadership Award!
Midge has been a beacon of light for our community, personally investing time, talent, and treasure to make West Michigan a great place to live and work. Midge's lifetime of finding solutions for community problems and always being a light that this community could reply on, particularly in a pandemic year, is why Greater Ottawa County United Way selected him to receive this award. On behalf of all the neighbors who have made it safely home thanks to your light, we thank you, Midge!
And thank you to www.hoeksmaphoto.com for creating this stunning award.
