His devotion to this community and helping organizations such as the Historical Society is endless. Joe literally never turns away when help is needed, no matter the time of day or night. It truly warms my heart to see him honored in such a prestigious fashion. This award is well deserved and I couldn’t be prouder to witness him receive it.” - Supervisor Ed Wehrheim
