It’s time to honor the heroes who help improve the community!
Congratulations to the Yakima Vally Chamber of Commerce for selecting Joe Mann for this year’s Ted Robertson Community Service Award.
So is this a big deal? Here’s how the Chamber sees it: THIS IS THE HIGHEST RECOGNITION OF THE YAKIMA VALLEY FOR CIVIC ACHIEVEMENT AND COMMITMENT. Big deal indeed!
THIS IS A BIG DEAL
The Ted Robertson Community Service Award was established in 1989 by the former Chairs / Chairs of the Board of Directors of the Grand Yakima Chamber of Commerce to honor annually those individuals who have made a major contribution to the betterment of the Greater Yakima region. Grand Yakima. Ted Robertson, former editor of the Yakima-Herald Republic, was a firm believer that the good fortune earned in a community should be shared with that community. Ted also believed that we, as a community, should find more ways to honor people who stand out for their community service beyond their chosen profession. The recipients are selected by Past Board Chairs / House Presidents for their inspiring leadership, accomplishments, and commitment to improving our community as business people and citizens of the Yakima Valley.
So this is a big deal. And although he would NEVER admit it, so too is Joe Mann.
IT’S LIKE JOE ROLLS!
He is known as the “unofficial mayor of downtown Yakima”, but when he’s not busy making Yakima a better place, he takes care of running his store, Ron’s Coin and Collectibles downtown. of Yakima, as well as being a major owner. .
House officials say Mann was chosen because of “his active involvement in the business community of the city he loves and loves what he does! Joe was born and raised in Yakima. He attended Saint Joe Catholic School and Carrol High School, his roots run deep and strong.
And if I can add my take on one of Joe’s many great qualities, it would be this: When you talk to Joe, you will find that he has a great gift for understanding. Joe has the ability to understand BOTH sides of a situation. In my experience, Joe has empathy, sympathy, and the ability to see the emotional content of an argument. CORN. he also has the logic, common sense, practicality, courage and sensitivity to weigh, measure and, ultimately, find the best solution.
Joe is a great man (although not as tall as before – share your secret Joe!) Award winner, Joe Mann!
Joe Mann will receive the Ted Robertson Community Service Award recipient on November 4, 2021 during the annual Chamber and Ted Robertson Community Service Awards celebration at the Yakima Convention Center.
