Response by Gerry Borden

Thank you, so very much, for the honor bestowed this past weekend. It is truly an honor and privilege to be inducted into the Evergreen District Hall of Fame. To see the great luminaries of the District who share the green jacket humbles me. I feel like the dim bulb that helps to make their accomplishments burn that much brighter. Thank you for the opportunity to have served the District over the past nearly 30 years in leadership, education and performance. This recognition, though, is shared by many, for no one man can accomplish much without the support of the many men and women who actively participate in the workings of our chapters, district and Society. Again, thank you!
