The Salvation Army recognized its top volunteers during a volunteer appreciation dinner Feb. 9.

Bell ringers were treated to a spaghetti dinner and awards were handed out.

This year’s top ringer award went to Richard Aspling.

Aspling logged 110 hours ringing at the red kettle this year and garnered over $5,000 in donations for the Superior Salvation Army between Nov. 4 and Dec. 24. He received a plaque from Captains Jason and Kim Elcombe.

Other top ringers included Cory Bauer and Bud Brand (24 hours each), Cliff Hanson (32 hours), the Chamber Youth Leadership (38 hours), Craig Oliver (34 hours) and Craig Peterson (42 hours).


Their efforts combined with many local businesses, Scout troops and individuals made it the most successful season to date for the Salvation Army, according to the captains.
