Charles Strizak, past district 10 commander, presented the Dillonvale American Legion Post 529 Legionnaire of the Year award to William F. Kerkuta at the group's annual community Christmas party held at St. Adelbert Hall.
Kerkuta was honored for his outstanding service and dedication to the Legion. He served as adjutant for the Legion for six years and was in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam era. He has been a member of the Dillonvale Legion for 26 years.
Strizak gave the welcome, and the Rev. John Kolesar gave the invocation at the dinner where Legion members from throughout Jefferson County were invited.
Rich Kovach was commended for contributing to the construction of a new roof on the post home and the gutter repairs.
