Glen Rock July 29, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES II • Page 5 Good Egg Award involves double yolk for sisters by John Koster Sammy and Amy Placencia, sisters who have been active in a number of volunteer programs in Glen Rock, were the double winners of the “double yolk” Good Egg Award. The award was presented at the Glen Rock Pool last week. “Both girls volunteered on the board of trustees for the Municipal Drug Alliance, and The Source, where they spread anti-drug and drinking messages,” said Babara Macdonald of the Glen Rock Municipal Alliance. “They helped create Teen Help/Hot Lines, worked at Wednesday Nite at the Pool, tutored fellow students, served senior citizens and the SIDS campaign…were involved at Smoke Out at our high school as well as Interact and TIGGS, addressed racial problems as members of Community Relations…the list is endless.” The Good Egg Award, which originated with Jean Baker Wunder of The Source, confers a decorated ostrich egg upon the annual winner who, by tradition, is always surprised with the honor, usually at a meeting of the Glen Rock Council. The ostrich eggs are decorated by Marisa Carbone. Sammy Placencia graduated from Rutgers University and is now pursing a doctorate at the University of Florida. Her sister is a pre-med student at Duke University, and plans to become a pediatrician. The sisters were surprised at the pool because no pretext could be found to lure them to a council meeting. “The Good Egg Award has a long history to it,” said Mayor John van Keuren, who turned up unobtrusively so as not to give away the surprise. “The award has been given for at least 10 years to outstanding volunteers who have done so much for the quality of life in Glen Rock without seeking attention. Tonight’s recipients, the Placencia sisters, have been active in youth programs and do a lot of other things for the community. They are worthy members of the Good Egg tradition.” �������������� ��������������� ������������ Sammy and Amy Placencia (foreground) received this year’s Good Egg Award. ���� �������� ������� ����������������������� �� ����������� � ������ Chiropractic Wellness Center ��������������������������������������������������� ����������������������������������������������� Break the Highway Trend!
