Knoblich honored for service
Published 02/03/2010, The Jamestown Sun
When Larry Knoblich started the Runnin O’ the Green 32 years ago, he said the event consisted of 24 runners, and was an excuse for a fun time out on the town. Now it’s a charity event that draws thousands of people from all around the U.S., and has an economic impact of about $500,000 for Jamestown, said JoDee Rasmusson, executive director of the Jamestown Chamber of Commerce. Because of Knoblich’s efforts as founder and coordinator of the Runnin O’ the Green as well other efforts, he will be awarded the 2010 Outstanding Citizen of the Year award. The Jamestown Chamber of Commerce will make the presentation on Feb. 4 at an awards ceremony at the Gladstone Inn & Suites, Rasmusson said.Word count: 965
