The Will County Bar Association recently presented its annual Service to the Community Awards to two deserving individuals, the Honorable Richard C. Schoenstedt and James M. Roolf. The awards were given during the non-profit association’s annual Christmas party held at Mistwood Golf Club in Romeoville.
Each year, the Christmas party gala is held before a room of attorneys, judges, and prominent members of the business community. This year’s gala was overseen by the Bar Association’s President Erin Webster O’Brien, Vice President Don DeWilkins and Second Vice President Bob Bodach, who was also the evening’s emcee.
