Well, all of this is to say that some really marvelous things happen here at Dodge, and some really marvelous people make them happen. Later this month, Dodge will honor a Volunteer of the Year, and, No, I won't tell you who it is (even though I know!). This year's award goes to a really deserving person, but there are a number of people around here who seem to make it their business to to give more than they might get. Mr. John Burgy seems to be one of those givers. I don't know John very well yet, but what I do know of him seems to fall in line with those who know him very well. John has a reputation as a Dodge volunteer of prodigious talent, great generosity and major kindness.
Preschool bright and early the very next morning with a package of dolmades! He wouldn't hand over the recipe until he heard the word that they were palatable (they are in fact delicious). He's just plain nice, a really nice human being. But you know, we sad sacks (aka Japanese beetles) did exact our "pound of flesh" from another giver anyway: while John was here delivering the goods, he somehow agreed to build the Preschool a shed!
