Oak Ridge resident Thomas Row, who has been a volunteer with more than 40 nonprofit and professional organizations throughout his life, was honored with a mayoral proclamation at the City Council meeting this month.
The proclamation recognized Row’s distinguished service and contributions to the community, the City of Oak Ridge said in its November 2017 newsletter.
Several of the more than 40 nonprofit and professional organizations where Row has been a volunteer have had a significant impact on Oak Ridge and Anderson County, the city said.
Row has also been the recipient of numerous awards for his community service. Most recently, he was honored with the Bill Wilcox Bow Tie Award from Aid to Distressed Families of Appalachian Counties, or ADFAC. The award is only given to those with a tireless volunteer spirit, the city said.
“We’d like to say thank you and congratulations to Mr. Row!” the city said.
