The Ottawa County Republican Central Committee is seeking noteworthy nominees to receive the 2nd annual Joy Roth Community Service Award. The award will be presented to a deserving Ottawa County resident who has given time and talent to make a positive impact for the betterment of the community.
The award is presented in the memory of the late Joy Roth, who selflessly dedicated her time and talent to improving many lives in Ottawa County. The dynamic leader of the Ottawa County Community Foundation, which Roth founded in 1999, awards grants and scholarships from the foundation’s $11 million trust.
Roth’s philanthropy was suddenly cut short two years ago by a heart attack.
“Joy was always someone who had the welfare of others in mind,” said her husband, Jeff Roth. “The stories are legendary, as were her efforts for the foundation.”
Nomination forms and selection criteria are available on the Ottawa County Republican Party website (www.ottawacountyohiogop.com); the
Ottawa County Community Foundation (ottawaccf.org); and the Port Clinton and Marblehead branches of Ida Rupp Public Library.
The nomination form and a brief biography of the nominee can be submitted to Debbie Tester at firstname.lastname@example.org or to 1002 E. Perry St., Port Clinton, Ohio 43452. The deadline to submit a nominee is Saturday, May 15.
The presentation of the Joy Roth Community Service Award will be on Thursday, June 16, at the Ottawa County Republican Annual Fish Fry to be held at the Catawba Island Club in Port Clinton.
