REALTOR Lauree Borup Earns Outstanding Community Award

On Friday, February 18th, 2000, the Hetch Hetchy Association of Realtors held their Top Producers’ Awards dinner/dance at the Pine Mountain Lake Country Club. This annual event usually awards Realtors on their sales abilities, along with other earned awards. This is the first time in the Association’s history that a Realtor had been singled out for her contributions and service, solely to the Groveland community.

Tuolumne County Supervisor Mark Thornton was guest speaker and presented the SPECIAL AWARD to Lauree Borup. Lauree is the Broker and Owner of RE/MAX Yosemite Gold. In his presentation, Mark Thornton said, “In all communities there are those grand people whose efforts on behalf of community organizations pave the way for success of those groups. They carry the projects with their strength, enthusiasm, dedication, know-how and optimism. These people go the “extra mile” and in doing so carry the rest of us with them to success”.

Lauree Borup has been a strong community supporter for many years. Her hands-on experience from both her real estate career and her prior Tuolumne County Planning Department management position (from 1978 to 1987) enabled her to work closely within the Southern Tuolumne County Historical Society (STCHS), the Groveland Community Service District and contractors to make the Museum/Library a reality. She spent many hectic years helping STCHS meet the requirements necessary to build the member’s dream, a new museum and library building next to the park downtown. Lauree now is Chairperson of the Building Committee and holds the office of Vice President of STCHS. She joined the STCHS Board of Directors in 1992. The Hetch Hetchy Association of Realtors was proud to honor its member Lauree Borup with the SPECIAL COMMUNITY OUTSTANDING SERVICE AWARD, 1999.
