  Mr. KEATING. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in recognition of Bill and 
Linda Zammer who were named Citizens of the Year by the Mashpee Chamber 
of Commerce in Mashpee, Massachusetts.
  The Zammers moved to Mashpee from Wellesley, Massachusetts in the 
late 1980s. With their vision, the Chamber of Commerce grew from twenty 
members to over three hundred today. Their efforts and dedication have 
given tremendous life to the Mashpee business community and Mashpee 
  Over the years they have owned many hotels, restaurants, and other 
similar establishments in the Mashpee area. They ran the Popponesset 
Inn in New Seabury for eleven years, the Coonamessett Inn in Falmouth 
for twenty-one years, and they still own the Flying Bridge Restaurant 
which they bought in 1994.
  The Zammers are also celebrated today for their philanthropy in our 
community. Their charitable work aims to help the homeless and needy, 
youth programs like the Boys & Girls Club of Cape Cod, and education 
through their scholarships. They also helped establish the William and 
Linda Zammer Institute for Hospitality and Culinary Studies at Cape Cod 
Community College. Their work in the Mashpee Scholarship Foundation 
gave over $100,000 to Mashpee High School students.
  Mr. Speaker, I am proud to honor Bill and Linda Zammer as Citizens of 
the Year. I ask that my colleagues join me in celebrating their 
accomplishments and wishing them many more years of success and 
community leadership.
