Recipient of the Dorothy Dolle Memorial Award for community service.
"Ms. Willena Skees, better known as Willie, has spent the past ten years serving lunch and/or dinner to our local Fire and Police Departments at least five days a week. She donates her time to shop, cook and clean the departments and help take care of the service members that take care of our community. During the Holidays she spends an enormous amount of time doing fundraisers for the annual "Shop with the Fire Fighters" which provides clothing and gifts for local children in need. In addition to fundraising, she gathers information on what each child needs (and wants) and helps to shop, wrap and deliver the goodies."
The Dorothy Dolle Memorial Award is given annually to an older person in the Lincoln Trail District who exemplifies the attributes of Ms. Dolle, a caring individual who was a dedicated volunteer.
