The first PSO Bluebills Myron Vogt Volunteer of the Year Award was presented to Bob Keaver on December 5 at their annual Christmas luncheon held at the Bay Club. Bob joined the Bluebills in 2015.
Keaver has been instrumental in expanding the group of Bluebill Builders in Kitsap County. Bob served as 2nd Vice Chair for the Bluebills and has worked with many programs and events, such as the 2016 Veterans Stand Down Event, Fishline Food Bank and Support Services, and many more. This award was created to commemorate Myron and the qualities that he exemplified—Care, Compassion, Commitment, and Community. Bob exhibits all of these.
Every year the Bluebills help make the holidays special for local needy families. Between funds donated at the luncheon and monies left over from last year, this year the Bluebills have $2500 to spend on gifts for 28 children, plus each family will receive a blanket and a $50 grocery gift card.
Myron Vogt was a founding member of the Olympic Peninsula Bluebills. On December 6, 2000 Myron received the following award of appreciation from his fellow Bluebills: “In appreciation of your outstanding and inspirational leadership and activities as President of the Olympic Bluebills for the year 2000.” He also received the Heart of Service Award from the PDN and Jefferson County Rotaries and was named Citizen of the Year by the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce.
