2017 Vision Keepers Award Recipients

We honored the 2017 Vision Keepers at the Vision Keepers’ Dinner held on February 19th. Click here to see the Vision Keepers Booklet.

A Vision Keeper embodies values that positively impact both the faith community and the larger community. We honor them because they truly grace every life they touch and encourage all of us to affirm our own vision.
