Ruhkala Award Recipient Recap
Mary Jo Edmondson - 2005 Individual Ruhkala Award Winner

Mary Jo Edmondson

Mary Jo Edmondson was honored in 2005 with a Ruhkala Award in the Individual/Couple category. Mary has dedicated herself to serving the Rocklin community, and describes her volunteerism in this way:

“Rocklin holds a special place in my heart, from my Chamber of Commerce days to currently … through Placer Valley Sunrise Rotary Club. Giving back to the community that has given so much to me and others is at the top of my list. Recently, our Rotary installed a bench in the Sunset Whitney Recreation Area in honor of Vince Amado! What a legacy that man left in Rocklin. Those are the things that make Rocklin amazing!”

The City is thankful for the work Mary Jo continues to do to help students, neighbors, and those in need. Do you know a person or organization giving back to Rocklin? Please take the time to make a nomination or spread the word about the awards! Nominations are being accepted through February 9 for the following categories: Individual/Couple, Business, Group, or Service Organization, Youth, and Pioneer.
