Quasqueton Group Receives Governor’s Award

Friends of Cedar Rock, from Quasqueton, have received the 2018 Governor’s Volunteer Award.

The Friends of Cedar Rock also were selected for a Group Volunteer Award for restoring the last remaining original Frank Lloyd Wright river pavilion. The friends group raised nearly $200,000 for the project and will receive its award at a ceremony on July 30 in Marion.

The Governor’s Volunteer Award program—now in its 35th year— recognizes the dedicated people who volunteer their time and talent to help fulfill the missions of Iowa nonprofits, charitable organizations, and government entities. The program provides an easy way for these organizations to honor their volunteers with a prestigious, state-level award.
