The Salvation Army held its annual civic dinner April 8 in recognition of volunteers and staff members who assisted people in need throughout Washington County in 2007.
Majs. Robert and Karen Lyle, commanding officers of the Hagerstown Corps, hosted the event attended by 160 people at Next Dimension Restaurant near Funkstown.
The evening was directed by master of ceremonies Ward Childerston with remarks by Christine Henry, outgoing chairman of the advisory board, who expressed her thanks for the tireless work by volunteers and members of the advisory board.
Henry introduced the new board chairman, Don Talbert, who said he was looking forward to challenging years ahead as the number of people in need continues to grow.
