Recognition by a trophy «BERGER»

' ' Received from the Crook ' '




The purpose of the trophy is to show appreciation for the services rendered to the Association of the Séguin of America.

The presentation of the decoration demonstrates the gratitude of the Board of directors towards one of its members.

By this honorary gesture, the Board wishes to emphasize the "strength and generosity" of the recipient. This is a good example for any other board member and its committees. He is also a good ambassador for the Association.

On June 6, 1999 in Rigaud, Quebec, the name of «BERGER» was chosen as the name of the trophy. It is accompanied by a certificate and presented at our annual gathering.

The trophy «BERGER» is a design by Mr. Marcel H. Séguin, member 513.
