Ruth Weigelt Receives Spirit of Lacey Award
Last night (11/3) during their meeting, the City Council honored Ruth Weigelt with a 𝗦𝗽𝗶𝗿𝗶𝘁 𝗼𝗳 𝗟𝗮𝗰𝗲𝘆 award! The Council established this award to recognize ‘𝗲𝘅𝗰𝗲𝗽𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹’ and ‘𝗼𝘂𝘁-𝗼𝗳-𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗼𝗿𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗿𝘆’ contributions to the community. It is intended to be awarded sparingly and on a limited basis so as not to diminish its significance and the extraordinary contributions of recipients.
𝗜𝗳 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗸𝗻𝗼𝘄 𝗥𝘂𝘁𝗵, 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗸𝗻𝗼𝘄 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗱𝗲𝘀𝗰𝗿𝗶𝗯𝗲𝘀 𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗳𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗹𝘆! Her involvement in our community (Lacey and beyond) stretches well over 50+ years and is never-ending! She’s is a founding member of Lacey Spring Fun Fair (committee chair for nearly 35 years), active in North Thurston Citizens for Schools committee – leading many levy and bond ballot-measure efforts, a member of the South Sound YMCA Board of Trustees for too many years to count, attends nearly all City of Lacey events, and the list literally goes on and on!
𝗧𝗛𝗔𝗡𝗞 𝗬𝗢𝗨, Ruth, for helping shape our community over the years and definitely making it a better place to live!
