Sun City honors outstanding volunteers

Special to The Sun City PacketMay 30, 2013 

Four Sun City Hilton Head leaders received the 2012 Board of Directors Award for their outstanding volunteer service to the community May 17. In addition, 11 Sun City residents received the 2012 Annual Volunteer Award during a May 18 ceremony.

Board of Directors Award winners were Hugh Dinwiddie, Ross Glatzer, Bill Hornbostel and Artie Smallwood.

Dinwiddie has been involved on many levels, including serving on the Modifications Committee, Transition Team, Property and Grounds Committee, Inter-Club Council Executive Committee and Nominating Committee. He also has served as the president of the Kayak Club, vice president of the Computer Club and 2012 Computer Club director of facilities. Dinwiddie's commitment to the Computer Club has elevated it to one of the premier computer learning/usage centers in the community.

Glatzer is the chairman of the Neighborhood Representative Council and the group has made many improvements under his leadership. Glatzer also is a member of the Sun City Veterans Association and a six-year member and coach for the Sun City Men's Softball Travel Team. He also was involved in organizing the Salute to Soldiers softball tournament last year which raised $5,500 for the Wounded Warriors Foundation.

Hornbostel has served on the Board of Directors from 2010-12 and was the vice president from 2011-12. Prior to being elected to the board, Hornbostel served on the Leadership Development Committee, the Strategic Planning Committee and the Neighborhood Representative Council. He also was a member of the 2007 Volunteer Task Force, which made recommendations to increase volunteerism in the community, and the Palmetto Commons Task Force, which recommended the best use of the building.

Smallwood has been active in the Deer Haven neighborhood and became the alternative representative in 2009. In 2011, he was elected the Softball Club's vice president and then president where he oversaw 350 members. The softball facility was dramatically improved under his leadership as he was instrumental in working with the Community Association in making improvements to the park. He also was head of last year's Memorial Day Softball Tournament to benefit the Wounded Warriors Foundation.
