Cambridge Area Chamber of Commerce Awards Booth Distinguished Public Service Award

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio — The Distinguished Public Service Award is given by the Cambridge Area Chamber of Commerce each year to an individual who demonstrates outstanding personal contributions by ways of active service, leadership and/or cause. This year’s award was presented at Thursday night’s Annual dinner to local historian Rick Booth.

He portrays Hershal Glenn at the John & Annie Glenn museum as a volunteer and was instrumental in putting together the John Glenn 100th birthday celebration getting the bronze statue of the local hero located in downtown Cambridge.

Rick presents history programs throughout the region at events and to many other service organizations and clubs and serves or has served on a number of boards.

Local history helps us to connect with our community and strengthen our sense of place and identity. Therefore, it is important to recognize the value of local history and to preserve  and share it for future generations and Rick Booth goes above and beyond to do both.

 

Cambridge Area Chamber of Commerce honors Gombeda with 2023 Community Impact Award

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio — The Cambridge Area Chamber of Commerce honored Ron Gombeda with its 2023 Community Impact Award Thursday evening
 

Ron has been instrumental in transforming the county in which he was born and raised. As the director of the CDC he has transformed the organization that has had a dramatic impact on the services it provides.

 

Pictured is Chamber of Commerce President Jennifer Vincent and Ron Gombeda
Under his leadership the CDC has renovated over 20 dilapidated homes and provided affordable housing to individuals and families who live and work in Guernsey County.
He has been very instrumental in many infrastructure projects throughout Guernsey County. Through a popular grant program, this individual and the staff of the CDC have been a catalyst for the revitalization efforts in downtown Byesville.
 
To date, he has written millions of dollars in grants and developed a veteran’s transportation program that provided free transportation to veterans who had medical appointments or errands and no means to get there.
 
The CDC provides food pantry assistance, fishing camps for kids, a veteran’s tree where community members purchase gifts for veterans in nursing homes at Christmas time to assistance with other projects. Log jam removal, hanging of the Main Street banners, manpower, installation of signs, ramps, flagpoles and more are just a brief highlight of all the services provided and expanded upon by the CDC thanks to this individual’s leadership. Humble, selfless and motivated by his love and passion for Guernsey County, Ron Gombeda has demonstrated his
outstanding contributions to better the community in which he lives and works.
