Brian Dubie on Saturday, July 15 at a special open house held at the Champlain Valley Exposition held to honor Jenkins as he approached his century-mark birthday.These award recipients are selected through an extensive grassroots effort in every state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Gometz spearheaded the nomination effort earlier this year and feels the Experience Works made the right choice. “Ray has truly earned this honor. He is loved and respected by all his fellow workers and the community of friends he has made over the years working at the Exposition.”The Outstanding Older Worker awards will be presented to Jenkins and winners from the other states in Washington D.C. in October.For more information about Experience Works,visit www.experienceworks.org(link is external)
