Friday at the 25th Anniversary Groundhog Day Auction two community members received awards for their service.
The Muskingum County Community Foundation presented the Dick Johnson Civic Leadership Award to local businessman Dick McClelland. The award is presented to a local business person who shows leadership in civic engagement, success in business and generosity in contributions to charities and non-profit organizations.
