Service Pins

We have jumped the hurdle to earn the prestigious 10,000 hour "The President's Volunteer Service Award" pin that we are wearing on our collars.  Along with the pin was a letter signed by President Obama congratulating and thanking us for our devotion to service.

We each  have 10,000 hours plus...that is like an employee working five years for each of us!!!  These hours are not guesstimated, they are honest and hard earned hours...hours that are documented. Any volunteer worth their salt knows what we are talking about.

This honor came as a complete surprise to us.  We are proud to have earned this award...and glad it was presented to us at Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge!!!


  1. Congratulations! I know what that takes as both Bill & I have been there/done that.... I just hope you know how much you are appreciated and how much good your hard work does to keep wildlife in balance. Good for you!

  2. Congratulations! You have given back so much in those 10,000 hours each. And you've got us beat by thousands.

  3. Congratulations - that is awesome!

  4. Outstanding!! The value of your service just can't be overstated.
