Volunteers, Buck and Janet Vogt, were inducted into the 2011 Senior Hall of Fame with the Concho Valley RSVP. Based on the time they have devoted to their work and the skills they have given to the community, they were selected for the 2011 award.
As volunteers with the Angelo Civic Theater for almost a decade, they have put in thousands of hours assisting in reaching the theater's goals, hosting many and varied productions and seeing that performances run smoothly. They have even acted in several of the theater's productions.
Their unmatched commitment to the Theater's goals and dedication to their work reflect favorably on the organization's staff and crew, and has earned them the title of the theater's "personal angels." They have devoted themselves to supporting theater arts and the mission and staff of the Angelo Civic Theater in the Concho Valley. Jan and Buck have developed a successful volunteer usher program for the theater's productions as well as selling and inventory of concessions.
Older Americans Month has been celebrated for the past 2+ decades by the Concho Valley RSVP, the City of San Angelo Senior Division, and the Area Agency on Aging of the Concho Valley. Part of this celebration is the acceptance of nominations to the Senior Hall of Fame for exceptional community volunteers. These older adults exceed and surpass others in the giving of their talents, time, leadership, and service. In making the selection, quality of service, character of service and length of service is taken into consideration by the judges. The Vogts were selected out of a total field of ten nominees.
Please join me in congratulating Buck and Jan.
