Team 1 Plastics, a plastic injection molding company for the transportation industry, was recently inducted into the Arlin E. Ness Circle by Starr Commonwealth “in recognition of all that you do to brighten the lives of Starr Commonwealth children.”
On Friday, June 15, 2018, Starr’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Elizabeth Carey, and Director of Development, Sarah Wasil, presented Team 1 Plastics with eight milk bottles. Wasil explained the significance of the milk bottles. They represent Starr’s history as a dairy farm and include components of its creed and values which continue to guide its future.
Accepting the milk bottles on behalf of Team 1 Plastics were Co-owners, Craig Carrel and Gary Grigowski. Carrel said, “We are proud to be a long-time supporter of Starr Commonwealth. Its history of more than 100 years of supporting children and families fits perfectly with our focus on being a ‘Positive Community Member.’ Both organizations are working hard to make Albion and our surrounding communities a better place to live and work.”
The Arlin E. Ness Circle is a recognition program which, according to Starr’s literature, was created by Starr’s Board of Trustees in 2003 “to provide a small token of thanks to our donors who have contributed significant support to Starr Commonwealth.” The program is named after Starr’s former President, Arlin E. Ness, who served at Starr for 35 years.
