1977 Tappan Zee Bronze Medals

Because William Klippel, chapter president, was unable to attend the Tappan Zee Chapter meeting at which the Bronze Medals were being awarded, Emil V. Bohnel, left, and John E. Boeggeman, right, both former awards chairmen, were each asked in secret to give the other a medal. The situation created an hilarious moment enjoyed by both men and the rest of the membership.
