Clayton Wins 2012 ECAR Community Service Award
The Tasting For A Cure event on October 19 was the venue for the presentation of Eastern Connecticut Association of REALTORS® 2012 Community Service Award to Quincy Clayton, a REALTOR® with RE/MAX Property Consultants in Groton. The award is given to members who do significant work in the community for the benefit of charities, organizations and individuals. The first place recipient and a runner-up are chosen who each designate a charity to donate a cash award to. The winner is awarded $500 to the charity of his or her choice and the runner-up is awarded $250 to the charity of his or her choice. Quincy has chosen to donate the $500 award to S.T.E.P.S. in Groton. In addition to being an active ECAR member, Quincy spends many volunteer hours assisting the New London Covenant Shelter, the Fairview Odd Fellows Nursing Home, the Born Again Oureach Ministry, the Susan B. Komen Race For the Cure and Habitat for Humanity. “I believe that my service to others is based on a general principle taught to me by my father as a young boy “Treat others as you would want them to treat you.” he said.
The runner-up was Douglas Taber, the Designated REALTOR® of Taber Realty in Moosup, CT. He has chosen to donate the $250 award to the American Cancer Society. In addition to being a member of the ECAR Board of Directors, Doug played a key role in the creation of the Plainfield Business Association. As its President he has played a key role in bringing the business community together. He also serves on the Town’s Board of Finance.
The presentation of the Community Service Award was the highlight of “The Tasting For A Cure” event, an ECAR wine tasting to benefit the Terri Broduer Breast Cancer Foundation. The event raised over $1,400 for the Foundation.
