Marge Unruh Service Award


The Richmond Beach Community Association (RBCA) accepts nominations for the annual Marge Unruh Community Service Awards.

The award was created in 1999 to recognize individuals in Richmond Beach who get involved and make this a great place to live. Award winners receive a plaque and have their names engraved on a perpetual plaque.

In 1999, Will Unruh accepted a plaque in memory of his wife, Marge Unruh, in whose honor the award is dedicated. Recipients are chosen by a committee comprised of former recipients from nominations submitted by residents. Everyone knows at least one person who deserves to be considered for this award. Please take the time to fill out the nomination form by April 15 for the current year's award.

Criteria for selection is based on outstanding service to the community. Candidates can be a person, business or organization, and do not necessarily need to reside in Richmond Beach or be a member of the Community Association. Some examples include service to the Richmond Beach Community Association through board leadership; serving on standing committees or participation in RBCA activities; promotion of issues benefiting the community; fundraising for community projects; service to youth, elderly or disabled in the community; environmental service to the community; or beautification of the community. Recipients are announced each year at the Richmond Beach Community Association May general meeting.
