Second Mile Award

Janet Riehl has initiated a new achievement award in honor of her father, Erwin A. Thompson, who will be celebrating his ninety-fifth birthday in a few weeks.

Aptly named and welcome, the Second Mile Award recognizes Elders 75 years and older whose dignity, character, creativity, and connection to community have contributed to the world around them.

Erwin based his life on the parable of the Good Samaritan: Matthew 5:41: “And whosoever shall compel you to go a mile, go with him, go twain.”

The deadline for nomination essays is November 9, 2010—Erwin’s birthday.
