The Proclamation, presented by Illinois State Senator Michael Frerichs, recognized Stanley’s ninety-second birthday (December 2011) and was formally presented at a recent luncheon in Stanley’s honor at the Windsor of Savoy. Stan’s wife Sarah, several members of their family, and several members of the ATG staff were also present.
