QUINCY — The Joe Bonansinga “Mr. Quincy” Community Service Award, named after its first recipient in 1998, is presented annually by United Way of Adams County and the Rotary Club of Quincy to an individual who exemplifies the highest standards of community service. The award will be presented at the Rotary Club meeting on Tuesday, May 21.

This award honors exceptional community leaders who demonstrate:

  • Service leadership by example
  • Energetic and motivating enthusiasm
  • Impactful community service
  • Perseverance and commitment longevity
  • Unselfish devotion and joy in endeavors that benefit the needs of others

Bonansinga was the first chairman to lead a United Way of Adams County campaign that exceeded the $1 million mark during the 1997 annual campaign. Near the close of the campaign, he inspired campaign volunteers to reach the goal saying, “Anything less is not acceptable for this community.”

In a press release, Jenna Hull, executive director of United Way of Adams County, said, “It is important to recognize and celebrate the consistent efforts of individuals who contribute to improving Quincy and Adams County. This award underscores the significance of upholding the legacy established by Mr. Bonansinga and highlighting a deserving community member in his honor.”

Area civic, business, church and service agency leaders are encouraged to nominate individuals who exemplify outstanding contributions to the community as volunteer leaders. Nomination forms are available at www.unitedwayadamsco.org. or at the United Way of Adams County office located at 936 Broadway, Suite F. The deadline for the first round of nominations is April 5.
