There, they were greeted by Lionel Betancourt, an esteemed member of the San Benito Rotary Club who – in the past – was recognized with the prestigious Service Above Self citation for his work in founding the Adoption Awareness Picnic.
Now, as Betancourt stood before a small but enthusiastic group of community members, all of whom willing to help restore Dolly Vinsant’s appearance so that it can be attractive to potential buyers, one thing became clear: They’ve got a lot of work to do.
