Big Dog to get County Council award on July 3 – welcomes friends to join him

County Council to recognize Big Dog’s Contributions to community

Councilmember Fred Blas will be presenting Wayne ‘Big Dog’ Joseph with a certificate/proclamation in the Hilo Council Chambers at 9 am on Tuesday, July 3.

‘The certificate is just a small way of acknowledging community members of their good work,’ a spokesperson for Blas’ office said.

‘Big Dog is certainly a community member worthy of acknowledgement, sharing his time, experience and knowledge as a teacher.  For living an inspirational life and sharing his love of running through his sports column and for his service to the County as a member of important Board(s) and/or Commission(s) to name a few,’ the spokesperson said.

Friends, family members and other supporters are encouraged to attend, but are asked to arrive 15 minutes early, at 8:45 am on July 3.
