Breaking News:

Past President, Mike Shirk Passes

In the past 51 years, SDWS has benefited from the contributions of so many volunteers and this past week we lost a member who ranks at the top of that list.   Recognized for his multi-faceted service to SDWS that included coordinator of the Paintout system, Membership Chair, Director of the International Exhibition, website master, and President, Mike Shirk was awarded the Society's highest honor, that of Life Member.  Disabled by a rare crippling disease, Mike proved that making accommodations is a part of life and not a sign of limited ability.
