(Upper Sandusky) – Fairhaven Community honored faithful supporters at a special dinner event held on June 12, at Fairhaven. This year, three awards were presented; the Ben M. Herbster Award presented to devoted donors, the Spirit Award to an enthusiastic volunteer, and the Diakonie Award to a supportive church congregation.
The honorees for the Ben M. Herbster Award for Fairhaven were Gene and Dorothy Beaston. Honoree for the Spirit Award for Fairhaven was Mrs. Ruth Adams, and for the Diakonie Award, Trinity United Church of Christ of Tiffin was recognized.
Individuals whose spirit of generosity led them to provide the necessary financial resources created United Church Homes almost 100 years ago. This tradition of generosity continues to be crucial to the ministries of United Church Homes.
“The honorees were chosen based on their commitment to the mission of United Church Homes, and furthering this mission with their support. We are grateful to all of the volunteers, employees, individuals, and congregations that continue to rally with us in their generosity each year. This is just one way we choose to say thanks for all they do for United Church Homes and their residents,” says President and CEO, Rev. Ken Daniel.
