Up-Date on Past Events:
1. TeenWorks Banquet - January 28th Banquet.
It was an outstanding night! Builders Club was acknowledged for our continued community
service with the Ronald McDonald Houses and the Parkland Senior Citizens Social/Dance.
A. A special award was created in honor of former Builders Club Member Zach Kraus.
Mrs. K had the privilege to speak about Zach and the incredible impact he had with everyone he
encountered. Zach was a giver and wanted to help others in need, even though he had his own
health complications (to say the least.) He truly was a role model and an inspiration!
To be able to keep his legacy alive, we are extremely grateful to TeenWorks of the Greater
Lehigh Valley for making this award possible.

Parkland Senior, Dana Emswiler. Dana is a very worthy young lady who is also making great
things happen in the community. Congratulations Dana!
