Although we were not able to publicly recognize this year’s Cornerstone Award honorees, Jeff and Cindy Lobach, in our usual celebratory manner, we did videotape a small ceremony to recognize them. Bob Rundle, our president/CEO, and Larry Young, chair – SpiriTrust Lutheran Board of Directors, acknowledged the incredible community contributions of this special couple and presented the award to Jeff.
