Now is the time to thank and praise Ed and Bunnie Lahey for everything they do to bolster and provide tennis for so many people of all ages in South County. They are indefatigable, cheerful, generous and devoted and without them the Berkshires summer would be severely diminished.

The Laheys and the Lee Community Tennis Association constitute a model of civic-minded excellence. They set a standard of community spirit that we would all do well to emulate.

And plaudits for Dewitt Thomson of the CTA, who does so much to instruct and inspire tennis lovers of all levels -- the promising, the hopeful and the hopeless.
