Doug has been a member of the Barbershop Harmony Society for 10 years beginning his hobby as a charter member of the Grove City, PA chapter. He and his wife of 47 years, Deblyn, moved to Wilmington in December 2011 and joined our chapter in March of 2012.  By January of 2013 he was asked to serve as the Chordsmen Treasurer beginning in January 2014.  Unfortunately, due to the untimely death of Treasurer, Paul Parker,  Doug took over Treasurer responsibilities in April of 2013 and served that capacity until 12/31/2016 when he turned over the financial reporting to Current treasurer, Courtney Talbot.

At the end of each year, a “Barbershopper of the Year” is selected. Candidates for this honor must meet the following criteria:

  2. Must have performed outstanding action(s) for the betterment of the chapter

The selection committee consists of the Active award recipients who are available with the second most recent recipient serving as chairman of the committee. The presenter should be the committee chairman or his designee.
