Sue Casso Rogers and Blue Dog Printing and Design were honored at this year’s annual banquet of the Greater West Chester (GWC) Chamber of Commerce. Sue was named 2023 Outstanding Citizen of the Year, sponsored by West Chester University, Blue Dog Printing and Design, founded by Bill and Debi Friedmann, was named 2023 Business of the Year.
“Blue Dog s work in the community reaches far beyond their printing, graphic design, mailing services and promotional products business, of which they donate a significant amount to local organizations,” said the moderator in  presenting  the award to the Friedmann’s. This recognition is very evident to our Rotary Club, having benefited for many years by help from Bill and Debi with the Chili Cook-off and other club activities/events.
Sue, a retired small business owner, active Rotarian and longtime West Chester resident was honored for her long history of service in the GWC Chamber of Commerce, and in the community. She has served as Chair of the Board of the West Chester Area YMCA, honored as YMCA Volunteer of the Year, Chairman of the GWC Chamber, President of Wentworth House, received the March of Dimes Excellence in Business Award.  She is well known in our club as a past president, Assistant District      Governor of Rotary District 7450, named a Rotarian of the Year, and is the current club secretary (and so much more!). We are proud of this recognition of our club Rotarians  by the greater community!
Sue was accompanied to the banquet by her husband, Bob.  Along with Bill and Debi, fifteen club members attended the chamber banquet, including Kate Diffenderfer, President Rich Murray, Mark Sammarone, Suzette Webb and Anne Driscoll. Thanks to Randy Lindel for capturing these photos.
