SPECIAL AWARDS

We value the contributions made by all members to make the club work as well as it does, but there are times when a member has provided service “above and beyond the call of duty." Those individuals are identified by the president or board members.

Joe Razza Special Service Award

The first of these awards, the Joe Razza Special Service Award, is in memory of former member Joe Razza. This special service award was established in 2005 in recognition of his dedicated and outstanding service to the North Bethesda Camera Club. 

Each recipient’s name is added to a perpetual plaque. The award may not be given every year and it may be given several times to the same person if their service so merits.
