|Dorothy Bonczynski and her daughter Susan Pirnie.|
Dorothy Bonczynski, of Farwell, NE, is the winner of the 2016 Fraternalist of the Year. Dorothy has been very active in her lodge, No. 152. She regularly sets up for the potluck luncheon and helps prepare the meeting by greeting members and guests, and she serves as lodge secretary.
Dorothy has had great suggestions for different projects and fundraisers, and is very involved in carrying them out. She chaired the project called Score Cards for Card Games. The score cards were made and decorated by lodge members and given to three local card clubs that meet monthly in the Howard County area.
She chaired the Birthday and Christmas Card Giving project. Members recycled used birthday and Christmas cards, decorated them, and gave them to two local nursing homes.
Dorothy has also provided handmade afghans and quilts used by the local fire department for raffles and silent auctions, or for those recovering from surgery.
Dorothy and other lodge members help elderly friends continue a viable lifestyle by taking treats to rest homes and helping with their social time of playing Bingo. She visits people in the hospital, local nursing homes, and makes calls to local members. Dorothy is a positive role model and inspiration to all who come into contact with her.
