Recognizing a Wonderful Person-Betty Taylor

At the end of last year we had someone who was very instrumental over the years of keeping the Fleet Safety Council running smoothly. Although she was recognized by other chapters we at the Hamilton Niagara Fleet Safety Council wanted her to know how much we appreciated what she has done over the years for our chapter. At the seminar we presented  Betty with a necklace showing our appreciation and the presentation brought a standing ovation from the audience. Thank you Betty for all you have done and may you have a wonderful retirement.
