Recognition Awards to Our Founders

When AFT 6157R celebrated its fifteenth anniversary on December 1, 2023, the Board members realized that our four founders needed to be honored and remembered. We asked Yuen Designs to create a certificate for each founder: William “Bill” Jacobs, Walter Soellner, George Forrester, and Alice Gosak. These were completed recently and framed and presented at the Membership Meeting on December 7, 2023. The certificates are shown below as well as a photograph of Alice Gosak and Walter Soellner after receiving their award. The posthumous awards to Bill Jacobs and George Forrester will be given to their widows by Walter Soellner. Congratulations to these pioneering retirees!

The Board also designated a space on our website where these awards will be forever posted. At the link: www.aft6557r.org, click on the menu and look under the item “About Us” and then sub-item “Awards.”
