Aeden Thompson and Jason Jones responded immediately when the father yelled for help as he struggled to guide his young son to the side after his first jump off the diving board.

The honorees received letters of commendation and thank you cards from the Board of Directors as well as the applause of grateful residents attending the dinner.
