Congratulations again Elmer. As one of the S.A.V.E.S. volunteers on duty at the Alamo Wine Festival I witnessed first hand how deserving people felt regarding you receiving this award. I'm very happy for you and to be a part of your team.

And congratulations again from me too, Elmer. As another S.A.V.E.S. Volunteer, "the committee couldn't have made a better choice."

Dear Dolores,

Neighborhoods are celebrating Rotary's recognition of Elmer. Hundreds of comments on e-exchanges simply define the breadth of contribution by Elmer, volunteers and community groups that support Elmer's efforts.

Elmer is the definition of community and an invitation among the broadest collection of groups in Alamo.

We have learned from his contributions,

Elmer is a first class guy. I can't think of anyone who could deserve this more. His dedication to the community and it's kids is unreprochable.
Well done, Elmer.

Dear Dolores,

Much has been made of the volume of support for Elmer's recognition. I would certainly join that reality as neighborhoods understood Elmer as an organizer and contributor to the broad spectrum of our community and region.

I enjoyed being "clerk" for neighborhood and community groups who wanted Elmer recognized, so like many that joined me, Elmer was given nomination for Citizen of the YEAR. And the most interesting point to observe is the number of Alamo volunteers that agreed that Elmer was exceptional this year in his broad-based contribution.

Many more deserve our recognition including Roger Smith, Brad Waite, Grace Schmidt, Bill Nelson and more. This year, with the county transition of voice for Alamo and the public emergence of neighborhoods, we can expect these exceptional candidates to be awarded recognition as more than one citizen of the year, September 2010.

I would applaud that result as only a fellow citizen.
