2015 awardees.  Diana Borrusch seated second from right

Diana Borrusch from Oakland Township received the Distinguished Volunteer Service Award. The Oakland Township Historical Society is almost completely dependent on community support and the time, energy and dedication of individuals who volunteer their services. For more than 20 years, Borrusch has served and supported the Oakland Township Historical Society. Almost since the founding of the organization in 1974, Borrusch has been an active member. In the 1990s, her passion for the goals of the society caused her to take responsibility for its survival and to lead a successful effort to turn the failing organization around.
