Unit 176 Texas Star Service Award Winner for 2013 is Tomi Fitzgerald
Unit 176 is very pleased to recognize Tomi Fitzgerald as its Texas Star Service Award winner for 2013. Tomi has just completed her second term on the Dallas Bridge Association Board of Directors, and we are very sorry to lose her. (However, we are not about to let her go.) Tomi has served as Secretary, Vice President, and President while on the Board, and also chaired the Dallas Labor Day Regional Tournament in 2011. Amazingly, she has volunteered to chair the Regional again in 2013, and will also be Chairman of the Dallas Nationals in 2014. Tomi is currently our District 16 Representative, and a member of our Tournament Committee. She mentors new players, and makes stuffing and green bean casserole for our holiday party – in short, Tomi does it all.
Tomi moved to Dallas eleven years ago from New Orleans, and goes back often to visit her daughter and grandchildren. When Tomi is not playing bridge or chairing a tournament, you can find her travelling to exotic locations with her beau, Bryan, or leading tours at the Dallas Arboretum. She’s a rabid Maver-icks fan and goes to as many games as she can during the season.
Congratulations, Tomi. You are a very gracious and deserving award winner.
Congratulations to Hemant Lall and James Richman for qualifying to play in the National NAP Finals in St. Louis in March. Hemant qualified in Flight A with his partner, Greg Hinze of San Antonio, and James qualified in Flight C with his partner, James Wilson of New Mexico. Both Unit 176 members will receive a subsidy from Unit 176 to help defray their expenses. Good luck to them both at the Nationals.
