At the recent Awards Banquet held at the CFMS Show in Ventura, the Golden Bear Committee was pleased to present two Golden Bear Awards to deserving members of the California Federation. This Award is intended to honor CFMS members who have given outstanding service to the Federation which goes beyond that which is expected in the usual course of Federation activities.
The first Award was presented to Bob Jones, Senior Consulting Editor of “ROCK AND GEM MAGAZINE”, who has been a staunch supporter of the CFMS for many years. He was elected as an Honorary Member of the California Federation in 2006 but he has supported the Federation as a guest speaker at CFMS Shows, ZZYZX, and other Federation events for many years.
Both of these people have done much to help and serve the Federation and certainly deserve the recognition the Golden Bear Committee was able to give them. It was a very rewarding experience for me to be a part of this Committee and I thank those who submitted their names to the Committee.
Jeane Stultz, Chairman
