About the 

Robert B. Dornfried Sr.

Lifetime Volunteerism Award

In September 2017, the Town of Berlin recognized Robert B. Dornfried Sr. with the creation of the Robert B. Dornfried Sr. Lifetime Volunteerism Award. This award is presented annually to an individual who demonstrates the same commitment to giving back to our community that Bob did throughout his life. We know that Bob would like to be remembered for his service to his country during the Korean Conflict, during which he was a recipient of the Bronze Star Medal; and his unwavering commitment to our local VFW Post 10732. In addition, he gave his time and talent to the Berlin Italian Independent Political Club, the Berlin Lions Club and the Berlin Little League. All of these groups will agree that their organizations greatly benefited from having Bob among their membership. 

The Dornfried family would like to extend their appreciation to the Berlin Town Council, Town Manager's Office, Bradford Parsons (VFW) and especially Bob Zipadelli (initiator of the honor).
