Congratulations to Sheila Gibbons and Alan Giomi on their Long Beach Heritage Volunteer of the Year Award!

Our volunteers are a vital part of our organization. Each year at our annual meeting, we recognize someone who has made a significant contribution of their time and talents.

Sheila Gibbons and Alan Giomi, the duo behind Willmore Baking Company, were given the 2019 Volunteer of the Year Award for the food and beverage service they provide for many of our events at The Bembridge House. They are also involved with Willmore City Heritage Association and give back to the community through their work by offering a tuition free course for low income people interested in learning to be professional bakers. Congratulations, Sheila and Alan!
