The Good News Award goes to someone whose work with people experiencing homelessness in Lancaster helps to bring to them hope and encouragement that they can improve their lives. Tabor’s President, Bob Thomas, speaks for his staff when he says, “We all know from our experience with Guy he has that effect on others and it was very nice to see Water Street recognize that gift.”
