Last and certainly not least among the major awards was Peggy Shields of Projects by Peggy, who was the recipient of the 2007 Volunteer of the Year Award. The chamber depends a lot of volunteers and Shields has been up to the task, officials said.
“It’s fun to get rewarded for doing what you enjoy,” said Shields, who re-designed the chamber’s Web site and continues to work extensively maintaining it.
As for volunteering, Shields said she just likes to give. “If I could do my job and give it away I would,” she said.
