Jeffersonville Volunteer of the Year

September 18, 2013

Jack Costello, a member of Jeff Lions and Jeffersonville Enhances more of Sullivan (JEMS), was dubbed volunteer of the year at the Jeffersonville Firehouse on September 14. The award came from Village of Jeffersonville Mayor Bill Thony and his board. Costello said in an email, “I was speechless and for once kept quiet especially after our exciting JEMS duck race earlier, but I need to set the record straight.”

Costello said he shared the award with numerous community groups, churches, schools and others, and added, “I just happen to volunteer with many of you, and I share this award with you all, and I’m proud to say that we all do make a difference in the world just like Arlo Guthrie has said from Woodstock—‘we all can wake up with a dream shared and make a difference and change the world’ each day a little at a time, even with only a hour here and there volunteering to help a worthy cause.”
