Each year our club honors an outstanding policeman and fireman from Santa Rosa. This year we honored Law Enforcement Officer of the Year 2013 Officer Brandon Matthies and Firefighter of the Year 2013 Captain Keith Flood. We were honored with presentations from Santa Rosa Police Captain Craig Schwartz and from Santa Rosa Fire Interim Chief Tony Gossner. Each honoree was selected from their departments for outstanding achievement during 2013. This was an outstanding event!

Officiating at the head table were President Peggy Soberanis, Marnie Goldschlag, Jose Guillen, and Jim Johnson. Also present was Teri Abramson, wife of the late Lee Abramson who was the founder of this annual event in which this event in now named after. This was the 20th year that the Rotary Club of Santa Rosa has hosted this event.
