Wright City Man Honored for Volunteer Work

Posted
A Wright City man was recognized this week by Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder for his volunteer efforts at the Warren County Senior Center. Kenneth Bruning was among 34 honorees who received the Lt. Governor's "Senior Service Award" during a luncheon Wednesday in Jefferson City. Bruning was nominated for the award by Carleen Williams, executive director at the senior center. Bruning has volunteered for many years at the center, delivering meals to the disabled and homebound residents. He is a volunteer at a food pantry in Wright City. In her nomination, Williams cited Bruning’s tireless volunteerism. “The desire to help others is in his heart, and I would like to see Kennth Bruning be recognized for his loyalty to our community,” she stated. Kinder presented Bruning with an official declaration and a Senior Service Award lapel pin during the recognition ceremony at the Capitol. “Kenneth Bruning sets an example for all Missourians with his kindness and willingness to serve the Wright City community,” Kinder said. “His selfless service is an inspiration to all who know him.” More than 150 nominations for the Senior Service Award were submitted to Kinder's office this year. Recipients representing the state’s 34 Senatorial Districts and one at-large winner were chosen. Bruning was the award recipient from the 10th District, which includes Warren County.
