Greater Seaford Chamber of Commerce Volunteers of the Year. Dave & Cristine Layton were named Volunteers of the Year by Paula Gunson, executive director of the Greater Seaford Chamber of Commerce, at the chamber’s Fall Dinner Meeting at the Seaford Golf & Country Club. They were named Volunteers of the Year for all the hard work they provide in planning events such as parades, the Towne & Country Fair and Riverfest entertainment schedules and sound systems, decorating of the Gateway Park and more. Dave and Christine have contributed hundreds of hours to help make the chamber’s events successful. See page 20 for story.
