CADIZ- Local businesses, organizations and community members will be
honored during the 12th Annual Cadiz Business Association Community
Recognition Dinner on March 19 at Wallace Lodge.

  Among this year’s honorees are Don Richards, Sally Buffalo Park Board
Award of Excellence; Dr. Scott Pendleton, DVM, Harrison News-Herald
Citizen’s Choice Award; Gold Star Kennel, Business of the Year; Cadiz
American Legion Post 34, Organization of the Year; and Harrison County
Community Improvement Corp., CBA Beautification Award.

  Richards, of Hopedale, is being recognized by the park board for his
vast years of working at the Mazeroski Ballfield, particularly with
maintenance and preparation for games involving Harrison Central High
School and the Cadiz American Legion. Richards is also on the board of
directors for the Harrison County Coal Reclamation and Historical Park
and Cadiz American Legion Post 34.

  Pendleton, of Cadiz, will receive the newspaper’s Citizen’s Choice Award
for his many services to the community. He has operated the Cadiz Animal
Clinic for nearly 19 years but is well known for his involvement with
the Harrison County Historical Society and the local Boy Scouts of
America organization. Pendleton has been active with the county
historical society for nearly a decade and is currently serving his
second time as president. He is also a past vice president of the group
and researches, writes for and publishes its “Jimhinker” newsletter and
leads its Cemetery Tour events. He also acts as committee chair with
Cadiz Boy Scout Troop and Pack 269, leading trips and training adults
for the program. Additionally, he is involved with the Buckeye Trail
Association as a section supervisor and maintains five miles of trail,
compiles the Christmas Bird Count for the National Audobon Society, is
an elder at Cadiz Presbyterian Church and serves as a member of the Ohio
Breeding Bird Atlas, Ohio Biological Society’s Board of Directors, Ohio
Veterinary Medicine Association and Brooks Bird Club at Oglebay Park in
Wheeling, W.Va.

  Gold Star Kennel gained the CBA’s Business of the Year distinction for
its continued service to patrons and the community. Owner Kay Moore had
housed a boarding kennel at her home while teaching science in the
Harrison Hills City School District. She retired from education after 30
years and opened a larger facility at the Cadiz/Harrison County
Industrial Park more than five years ago to provide boarding for dogs
and cats, grooming, obedience training and day care. Gold Star also
offers show handling to patrons as far as Steubenville and Weirton,
W.Va., and one young client recently participated in the American Kennel
Club Westminster Dog Show in New York City. In addition, Moore has been
an active participant in the Cadiz Business Association and often
volunteers her time for many of its events.

 Cadiz American Legion Post 34 will mark its 91st anniversary in March and
has had 15 of its 144 Legionnaires members serving for more than a
half-century. The Legion has been a large part of the local landscape,
raising funds for school activities and scholarships and providing
holiday meals for vets and their families. Among its latest endeavors
were the Stuff A Bus toy campaign along with the county Help Me Grow and
Toys for Tots organizations, hosting participants in the Sea to Shining
Sea Bike Ride across the U.S. and supplying Memorial Day flags for
cemeteries, hospital beds and wheelchairs for vets and Honor Guard for
funerals and events. The Legion also includes 108 people in the Sons of
the American Legion, 79 auxiliary members and about a dozen youths in the
junior auxiliary.

 This year, the business association is presenting the Beautification
Award to the Harrison County CIC for the great strides it has made in
cleaning up the community through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program.
The agency was able to acquire federal funds to redevelop the residential
properties and enhance aesthetics in the community. About nine
dilapidated structures were raised throughout the village in a venture
with Cadiz Council and Blackie and Sons Excavating, with two more
demolished in Jewett and Piedmont.

  The evening begins with a social hour at 6 p.m., followed by the dinner
and award ceremony at 7 p.m. at the park. Adrian Pincola will be
featured as master of ceremonies and a total of seven awards will be
given, including the Cadiz Civic Women’s Club Community Service Award
and the top secret Lions Club Citizen of the Year distinction.
Froehlich’s Classic Corner in Steubenville will cater the event and
musical entertainment will be provided.

  The event is sponsored by the Cadiz Business Association, Sally Buffalo
Park Board and Harrison News-Herald. Tickets cost $25 each and are
available at the Cadiz/Harrison County Visitors Center, Harrison
News-Herald, PNC Bank and Orme’s Hardware.
