Second Mile Award 2010 sponsored by Janet Riehl and her father. We congratulate the winner, Tom Hoe, age 95, of Montana. Here is Janet’s notice thanking all of you who nominated elders who live an ordinary life in an extraordinary way.
Dear Riehlife Villagers,
We read about so many remarkable elders as we sifted through the nominations for the 2010 Second Mile Award. Nominees ranged from 78 to 95 and come from coast to coast.
We had our work cut out to choose our 2010 winner--Mr. Tom Hoe, a 95 year old musician and story teller, who continues to go the extra mile. Read Jan Beekman's essay nominating Tom: "How to Grow in Grace and Experience but Never Grow "Old" http://tinyurl.com/2ddzawl.
We've selected two honorable mentions: Joe Taylor and Helen G. O'Leary. The essays nominating these two elders are coming soon.
All the best,
