Mary Yantis, president of the Dublin Historical Society, presents Ike Wade with a plaque of appreciation for the many years he donated his services as treasurer and bookkeeper for the historical organization. He has recently turned those responsibilities over to Jill Ricks who is with BMY in Dublin.
The society also presented gift certificates to Wade and to Mrs. Ricks who now serves as historical society treasurer. Shown at right is Gus Martin, a member of the historical society board. The surprise presentation took place when several members of the historical society board “barged into” the Lions Club installation banquet at B’s BBQ. Also present was Wade’s wife, Patty Hirst-Wade, and society board members Willard Mann, James Smith and Karen Wright.
