Each year, the French Creek Council of the Boy Scouts of America honors local residents for outstanding leadership in community endeavors that contribute to the vitality of Mercer County and Brookfield Ohio. Recent recipients include Dr. John Scullin, Attorney James Epstein, William Perrine, Robert Beach, George Gerhart, Jerry Nighswander, Clifford Hovis, Dale Deist, Senator Bob Robbins, Karen and Donna Winner and Pastor Larry Haynes. These recipients and others like them have all helped to make our area a better place to live, work and play.
This year’s honorees are especially deserving of the award, which also recognizes leadership in preparing today’s youth for tomorrow’s challenges. The 2016 Distinguished Citizen Awards will be presented to Mr. Matthew Ristvey and Mr. Shane Nugent at a dinner to be held in their honor. The event is slated for Tuesday, October 25, at the Park Inn by Radisson, 3377 New Castle Road, West Middlesex, PA 16159. A light reception will begin at 5:45, followed by the program and dinner which will begin promptly at 6:15.
Please join me in recognizing these two outstanding citizens for their generous contributions to our community. Your support will also help the Boy Scouts of America continue its important work of preparing young people to make responsible, ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes. Please respond by Monday, October 10, 2016, so that we may reserve your seats.
If you are unable to attend the dinner, but would like to show your support for this event, please consider making a contribution in honor of Matthew Ristvey and Shane Nugent. I, along with the French Creek Council, Boy Scouts of America, greatly appreciate your participation.
