Batavia Township trustees honored employees with the Clermont County Board of Developmental Disabilities during their Oct. 2 meeting.

“We have had another great year of service from Clermont DD,” Rex Parsons, administrator, said.

Parsons said they have several individuals work at the Batavia Township Community Center mowing grass during the spring and summer months.

“Our crew has been doing this for a long time in the township,” Dan Ottke, adult services director at Clermont County Board of Developmental Disabilities, said.

Trustees recognized and thanked each individual including Chris Marksberry, David Williams, Lee Burbank and Trevar Field, for their work at the community center and presented them with a plaque for all of their hard work.

“We want to thank you all for a job well done,” Jim Sauls, trustee, said.

Parsons also pointed out that October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month.

Lisa Davis, director of community relations for the Clermont County Board of Developmental Disabilities, said National Disability Employment Awareness Month was enacted in congress in 1945 as National Employ Physically Handicapped Week.

She said the name was changed to acknowledge the employment needs and contributions of all types of disabilities, and Congress expanded the week to the month of October in 1962.

“CCDD is proud of individuals with disabilities who are employed in the community and celebrates their accomplishments during October each year,” Davis said.
