The 2013 Donald and Corinne Stork Award for Community Service was presented to Penn Yan residents George and Carolyn Schaeffer at a noon luncheon Oct. 15.
Keuka College established the award to recognize those individuals who exemplify its historic commitment to the value and benefit of using individual initiative for the common good.
The award was named after the first recipients of the award, Penn Yan residents Corinne Stork and the late Donald Stork, in 1991.
Among the organizations that have benefitted from the Schaeffers’ time and talents are Milly’s Pantry, Food for the Needy, Christmas for the Needy, Yates County Democratic Committee, and Branchport Elementary School.
The Schaeffers also teach social ballroom dance lessons for free through the Penn Yan Adult Education Program.
