Dan Woog - 2023 COMMUNITY PARTNER AWARD
As President Mike Burns said at the presentation ceremony on November 4, 2023: "Last but not least, in sort of alphabetical order, is Dan Woog. Honestly, I had a hard time writing this because it's overwhelming trying to express what a tried and true supporter of WVEMS that Dan has been for many many years. He too is a driven and tireless member of our community. As we all know, his blog has become a sort of glue that holds our community together for local news, trivia, fun, and in our case, promotion and awareness. Dan never hesitates to promote us and his reach with the residents, both current and former, is amazing. It is hard to quantify his impact over time (HUGE) but suffice it to say that he has not only had a direct impact in raising money for us but also in getting students for our EMT classes which in turn boosts our ranks. Dan also raises our profile with the people of Westport who sadly never seem to know our story. Thank you, Dan, for your positive impact not only on us but on the community. Keep up the good work!"
