FP Community Council Names Citizens of the Year
The Fairview Park Community Council has named Nancy and Dick Cause as the 2016 Citizens of the Year. Only once before has this recognition been awarded to a husband and wife at the same time.
Nancy began volunteering when her oldest child started in nursery school and she hasn’t stopped. When the kids were school age, she was very active supporting their schools. If that is not enough, Nancy has been a member of the Fairview Park Junior Women’s Club for 22 years, serving as President for four terms.
Nancy is active at her church, Messiah Lutheran, coordinating and serving food for funeral receptions. For many years she has helped coordinate and bake desserts for the Fairview Park Youth Association’s Night at the Races. She has been involved in collecting donations for We Do Care and the Fairview Park Hunger Center.
Dick is a longtime Trustee and Treasurer of the Fairview Park Education Foundation. He is a member of and Treasurer for the Fairview Park Youth Association. He has been Treasurer and President of the Football Boosters. He audits the FP Junior Women’s Club financial records. He has been the Financial Secretary for Messiah Lutheran Church for 30 years. Dick currently serves on the Accounting Advisory Council for the College of Business Administration at Kent State University.
Nancy and Dick have been married for 37 years and have lived in Fairview Park since 1983. These two people are equally deserving of this honor on their own merit, but they support and complement each other’s volunteerism. They have been and remain committed to their organizations, this city and the needs of those around them.
