At the Jan. 2015 lunch meeting, Diane Walters, immediate past-president of APC, presented Thetus Smith with the 2014 Spark Plug Award. Thetus has been maintaining APC’s mailing lists and compiling and sending the Email Express for many years. She learned and converted to a new database manager last year. Thetus takes reservations for the APC luncheons, working closely with the restaurant, and helped with the garage sale. She comes faithfully to board meetings, even though she is a retired member and no longer a voting member of the board. Thetus is someone who works tirelessly behind the scenes, but is one of the most important people in making the APC organization and meetings successful.
