Gov. William Donald Schaefer will serve his second year as honorary chairman of the Central Maryland J. C. Penney Golden Rule Awards. Several county residents in the past have won the award.
The awards ceremony will take place from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 16, at Martin's West.
The Golden Rule Awards, founded by the J. C. Penney Co., were established to honor the Central Maryland volunteers who best exemplify the spirit of volunteerism.
The governor will present a specially commissioned bronze sculpture, a certificate and a $1,000 grant to each of the five adult and one youth winners.
