“You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give,” so said former Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Our San Marcos community has had the good fortune of having generations of devoted volunteers who have given generously to build the organizations and institutions that enrich our lives today. In recognition of that spirit of volunteerism, the Riverwalk Committee and the Heritage Association of San Marcos annually remembers late members of the Association who were generous with their time and talents for the benefit of our community with the Heritage Tree of Honor award. Phyllis Whitaker, Jerry Sebek, and Charles Blue are the 2020 honorees. Charles (Chuck) Blue
