BIG RUN â Despite rumors to the contrary, a Big Run Citizen of The Year was chosen during Sundayâs 19th annual Spring Peepers Banquet at the War Memorial.
Robin A. McKee was named as the recipient of the âRobert L. âBoBoâ Davis Awardâ by the banquet committee according to Mayor Joseph Buterbaugh, who also served as the emcee for Sundayâs festivities.
McKee is not a Big Run native, Buterbaugh said, but has been a active person in the community since she arrived, having served as a Sunday School teacher and actively helping with the Big Run Food Bank.
BIG RUN â Jefferson County Commissioner Jim McIntyre was the featured speaker at the 19th annual Spring Peeper Banquet Sunday.
âI was told by Big Run Mayor Joseph Buterbaugh that my talk should not be political,â he said, adding that he believes that both Republicans and Democrats alike would agree on the ending of the story he was about to tell.
âWhen Iâm at a county commission meeting, Iâm bound by Roberts Rules of Order,â McIntyre said. âWhen Iâm at meetings at home, I go by Eileneâs (McIntyre) Rules of Order, even though Iâm the boss.â
