The Scott and Margaret Hinsch Community Service Awards

The Scott and Margaret Hinsch Community Service Awards

The Piqua Community Foundation is accepting applications for the third annual Hinsch Community Service Awards.   The Scott J. Hinsch and Margaret W. Hinsch Community Service Awards will recognize volunteer service to organizations located in Piqua or in Washington or Springcreek townships.

Nominations must be made by local charitable non-profit organizations, on a form available from The Piqua Community Foundation office or CLICK HERE. The application should focus on the nominee’s service in the previous year – volunteer service in 2017 will be honored this year. A special feature of these awards is that $1000 grants will be presented to the organizations that nominate the winner of each award.

The family of Margaret and Scott Hinsch established the award program through The Piqua Community Foundation to recognize active community volunteers who follow the Hinsches’ examples. Both Margaret and Scott were active in the Piqua community for many years in organizations including Piqua Memorial Hospital, Girl Scouts, the Y.M.C.A., Meals on Wheels, the Piqua Public Library and more. Former honorees include Jeff Lange (Y.M.C.A.), Suzie Hawkes (Y.W.C.A.), Jim Gover, Jr. (Piqua Parents as Teachers) and Wilma Earls (The Bethany Center.)

Completed applications must be returned to The Piqua Community Foundation office, P. O. Box 226, Piqua, Ohio, no later than March 1, 2018. Those with questions should contact executive director, Karen Wendeln, at 615-9080.
