The Jay Seeger Service to Mankind Award

The Service to Mankind is an award that is given out to someone who has been active over the years as a volunteer in our community. This award is given to a non-Sertoman who exemplifies what it means to be of Service to Mankind. Over the years recipients have included mayors, teachers, clergy and girl scout leaders. The Sertoma Club of Greater Grand Forks on July 16, 2013 declares from this day forward The Sertoma Service to Mankind Award is now “The Jay Seeger Sertoma Service to Mankind Award” in honor of Charter Member Jay Seeger.
