Dear Mr. Ursini:
I am pleased to advise you that you have been selected as a co-recipient of the Costa Mesa Mayor’s Award. You, along with your son, John, will be recognized for this achievement at the April 7, 2003 Costa Mesa City Council meeting, to be held at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers. We would like to invite you and your family to join us for the presentation in your honor.
I cannot stress how impressed I was with your dedication to the people in our community. Your support of many academic and athletic programs in the Newport- Mesa School District through sponsorship, gift certificates, student discount programs, donations, meals, and grants, has provided a steady stream of assistance to our youth and our schools. Your commitment to chairing AYSO pancake breakfasts for 15 years to benefit both AYSO and Kiwanis charities has resulted in raising over $200,000—illustrating your outstanding leadership skills. Finally, your selfless actions serve as positive examples to people everywhere. These qualities exemplify the ideals on which this Award was founded.
Your commitment to our community is admirable, and most deserving of recognition through the Mayor’s Award program. You are clearly an asset to our City.
On behalf of the City of Costa Mesa, let me express our appreciation and personal thanks for your outstanding dedication and service to the community.
Very truly yours,
Karen L. Robinson
