When Apel, a Martin resident, put together a DVD entitled “The Journey Begins,” his intention wasn't to make anyone famous or garner any awards. His goal for the video "was our desire to come up with a resource that could help introduce young people to the outdoors and create an interest for them to start exploring it in their own way."

“The Journey Begins” was produced by Jeff and his wife, Esmeralda's, new production company, Straight Arrow Productions LLC. Jeff began filming the DVD in June 2006 and ended in January 2009. Editing and producing the 92-minute video concluded last June.

Tuesday, held at Inverness Country Club. That includes parents Robert E. and Jane Palmer Yenrick and their five children.

Timothy Yenrick, director of the Greater Toledo Chapter of the American Red Cross, writes in his biography, “When you are the fourth child in a family of five being raised by Bob and Jane Yenrick, family and community service is not something you think about, it is something you just do.

“Growing up on Forsythe Street in East Toledo holds many fond memories. My grandmother, Cornelia Harpster Palmer, lovingly called ‘Gram,’ and my siblings were a great influence on me. At age 103, Gram’s advice was to ‘do something constructive every day.’ I have tried to follow her advice,” Tim continues.

Deb Yenrick is the oldest of the five siblings. She attended Mary Manse College with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology; the University of Toledo with a master’s in Special Education, and completed 34 hours in a doctorate program for administration.

Toledo Glass Key Awards ceremony at Inverness Country Club.

Mayor Carty Finkbeiner and co-hosts honored deserving Toledoans for their lifetime of service to Toledo. Included among them were humanitarians, educators and civic leaders who, over the past 25 years, have committed themselves to making Toledo a better place to live.

A press releases states that a major factor considered when selecting the nominees was their continuing commitment to the region over a period of time.

“Many individuals participate periodically in various events benefiting our community, but few continue this contribution year in and year out. The award winners of this prestigious Glass Key truly demonstrate a lifelong commitment to Toledo and Northwest Ohio. These dedicated individuals have selflessly given of their time, knowledge, and resources.  They have touched the lives of countless people in this community,” the release states.
