Taking home the top club award was Wayne Palm, who was presented the prestigious Golden A. The Golden A is to A’s Volunteers what the MVP is to players. Palm has been an integral figure team, working in several capacities at the ball park and taking a lead role in most off-season projects. He was recently elected the club’s Corporate Secretary. The Golden A is a lapel pin from R. Erlien Jewelers.

The Sponsor of the Year Award went to Miesfeld’s Meat Market and was accepted by Chuck Miesfeld. Miesfeld’s is a 45-year sponsor, a 15-year major sponsor and played a key role in the recent A’s scoreboard project.

Special Awards went to announcer Bill Wagner and to Art Imig’s employee Jessica Huenink.

Huenink, of Art Imig’s Clothing Care Center, was responsible for keeping the A’s new uniforms looking new did a 24-7 job as the point person on the first year experiment, which saw the A’s uniforms professional cleaned after each game.
