A very big congratulations to Savage's own Susan Garber. Susan was surprised to find out that the Savage Community submitted her name to President Obama for her volunteer service to the Savage community.

Susan has dedicated over 4,000 hours and received the President's Lifetime Achievement Award for lifelong commitment to building a stronger nation through volunteer service. Susan has served many positions in our community.

Recently, she served several years as Savage Association Board Chairwoman. She received a plaque and pin. What a wonderful asset to our community and Howard County as a whole. Congratulations, Susan. The award was presented at Savage Fest. Savage Fest was a huge hit this year with a lot of food, fun and music.
