n Ann Hersom was honored in absentia by the Florida Shuffleboard Association on Nov. 12 as one who has done much for the sport, a regular feature of the Centennial Committee. Formerly of Golf Lakes, Hersom is living in California to be near family. She is in 23rd place of all-time Ladies Points in Florida with 425 lifetime points. Hersom served for many years as treasurer of the FSA. She matched players with partners on the Internet. She was District Keeper of Records and was a force to be reckoned with for about 30 years at state, district and local tournaments and played on Team USA. She will receive a Centennial Pin for all these efforts. Congratulations, Ann Hersom.
