The Rotary Club of Marco Island announced that it presented its 2013 Spirit of Marco Island Award this past week to Barbara and Louis Prigge of the Kiwanis Club of Marco Island.
Mr. & Mrs. Prigge were presented with their award at last week’s Kiwanis meeting in front of their fellow Kiwanis members, as representatives of the Noontime Rotary Club made their surprise announcement.
The Prigges were recognized for their contributions to Marco Island through their service in the Kiwanis Club as well as many other civic organizations.
Lou is a member of the Knights of Columbus having served as past Grand Knight & Faith Navigator. He is currently the Chairman of the City of Marco Island Code Enforcement Board, member of the Fire Rescue Foundation and Treasurer of the Police Foundation.
Barb is a past president and founding member of the San Marco Catholic Church Columbiettes and also a member of the Bedtime Bundles that provides the basic needs for migrant children and their families. Both Barb and Lou are members of CERT the Certified Emergency Response Team for Marco Island.
The Prigges are probably best known in the community for festively decorating their North Collier Boulevard home for all the major holidays and opening it up for the community to enjoy.
Barb and Lou Prigge along with previously announced winners Keith Dameron of Iberia Bank and Rick Medwedeff of the Marriott Resort will all be formally presented with their 2013 Spirit of Marco Island Award at a Gala Awards Dinner and Silent Auction to be held on Saturday, April 27, 2013 at the Bistro Soleil Restaurant located in Old Marco.
The proceeds from the event and silent auction are used to support local charities and scholarships.
