To Recognize and Congratulate Judy and Tom Skinner, for being named “ThisWeek Booster Community Volunteers of the Year” by the Clintonville Area Chamber of Commerce.

 

Body

WHEREAS, the Clintonville Area Chamber of Commerce awards the “ThisWeek Booster Community Volunteers of the Year” to Clintonville residents who have made a special impact on Clintonville through their volunteer activities; and

WHEREAS, more than one thousand people volunteer to help cut hair, answer phones, cook, and clean and work special events at the Ronald McDonald House, a dedication led by the Skinners that saves the facility $2 million a year; and

WHEREAS; the efforts of Judy and Tom Skinner have enhanced the quality of life for all residents in Clintonville and the City of Columbus, now, therefore

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF COLUMBUS:

 

That this Council does hereby recognize and congratulate Judy and Tom Skinner, for being named “ThisWeek Booster Community Volunteers of the Year” by the Clintonville Area Chamber of Commerce, on this 23rd day of February 2017.
