July V.A.C. Award: Ron Onken

Ron Ok - CopyLiveDAYBREAK wants to highlight Ron Onken as July’s V.A.C. Award winner. Ron has been an incredible volunteer since moving to Daybreak and has helped with events such as the Dragon Boat Festival, Community Camp Out, Pumpkin Regatta, Duck Derby, and many more.

Ron and his wife, Teresa, love giving back to the community by volunteering with LiveDAYBREAK, but also with Garden Park Village, where Ron sits on the Board of Directors. When he’s not giving his time to the community, he enjoys being with his grandchildren, cruising the trails of Daybreak on his e-bike, and road-tripping around the West. One of his favorite moments of 2022 so far is celebrating his grandson’s 5th birthday at Disney World, and watching his expressions while dancing with Minnie Mouse. Closer to home, when asked what his favorite part of living in Daybreak was, Ron said, “The people. We have met a lot of great people since moving here. The great LiveDAYBREAK activities would be a close second. There’s always something going on.”

Although he has helped with most of our large events, his favorite LiveDAYBREAK event is the Camp Out or Soapbox Derby. “I just enjoy seeing families getting out and having a fun time,” Ron explained. Thank you again, Ron, for your support these past couple of years. We cannot thank you enough for helping us make this community so great!
