Inter-Service Club Council installs new officers at Manassas ceremony

Greater Manassas leaders beamed with pride on Thursday night, Jan. 15, at the Inter-Service Club Council’s (ISCC) Annual Banquet. 

Mayor Hal Parrish and Judge Carroll A. Weimer, Jr. participated in the volunteer awards ceremony and the installation of the 2015 officers.  City Councilwoman and outgoing ISCC President Sheryl Bass began the event with a call to order.

Signs of a successful community were spotted throughout the Manassas Church of the Brethren recreation hall.  Merit badges decorated the Boy Scouts Troop 670 as they performed the flag ceremony and served the dinner.  Framed awards of volunteer excellence and an impressive “Volunteer of the Year” trophy were showcased.

Mayor Parrish spoke about the importance of community volunteerism as a “good dose of medicine during hard times.”

Judge Weimer conducted the installation of the new 2015 ISCC officers: President Ernie Newland, Vice President Chester Smith, Secretary Joseph Angsten and Treasurer Julian Rozzell.

The following outstanding volunteers were awarded for their accomplishments to the Greater Manassas community: Chester Smith, Manassas Host Lions Club; John Mitchell, Jr., Manasseh Lodge 182; Charlie Fromm, Boy Scouts of America; Xiao-Yin Byrom, Rotary Club of Manassas; Don McCubbin, Habitat for Humanity; Erin Beckman, Historic Manassas, Inc. and Judy Holt, Lake Jackson Lions Club.

Xiao-Yin Byrom was announced as the Volunteer of the Year. Byrom was honored for her selfless and touching contributions to community projects in Manassas as well as her travels to Mexico to deliver more than 50 wheelchairs.

Kisha Wilson-Sogunro, Manassas City Neighborhood Services Manager, Councilwoman Sheryl Bass and Chester Smith were recognized as charter members for the ISCC of Greater Manassas, organized in 2012 as a liaison between the various member organizations of Manassas, Manassas Park and western Prince William County.
