He has also given his time to several notable events, including Burlington Noon Lions Club’s annual Oktoberfest, the Boy Scouts of America “Top Shot” fundraiser, B-Town in the Park, and regular eye screenings for local children through the Burlington Noon Lions Club.
“Service to others is the rent we pay for our place on this earth,” said Bross. “I truly believe that we can be better people when we serve others and give of our time without any expectations in return. It is more blessed to give than receive.”
