Diane and Bruce Turton To Be Honored by Boy Scouts As Distinguished Citizens of the Year

Couple Will Be Recognized for Ongoing Support of the Community and Today's Youth

POINT PLEASANT BEACH, NEW JERSEY (March 24, 2005) - The Jersey Shore Council Boy Scouts of America will honor Diane and Bruce Turton at their 30th annual Distinguished Citizens Award Dinner April 27th at The Mill in Spring Lake Heights, New Jersey.

Ms. Turton is President and Broker/Owner of Diane Turton, Realtors. Mr. Turton manages the company's facilities, including 22 sales offices in New Jersey in addition to the company's Corporate Centre in Point Pleasant Beach.    Diane Turton, Realtors also maintains two offices in Florida serving Palm Beach and Martin Counties. 

The Distinguished Citizens Award Dinner recognizes those who make a difference in the lives of young people.  Proceeds from the event are used to help the Jersey Shore Council Boy Scouts of America serve more than 15,000 youth and adult members to fund activities that reinforce the Scouting ideals of character development, participating citizenship and personal fitness.

"Bruce and I are incredibly honored to accept this award from the Boy Scouts," said Ms. Turton. "As residents at the Jersey Shore and business owners here, we take great pride in supporting the community and creating opportunities for future generations. Being awarded the Distinguished Citizens Award confirms that our actions, and those of our entire company, are truly making a difference in people's lives."

Mr. Turton added, "It's very gratifying to be recognized for our support of the community.  When Diane and I first started our family we had very little, and we worked hard to get where we are. Now that Diane Turton, Realtors has become so successful, we feel privileged to be able to give back to the community, helping those in need and supporting the children who will lead our communities some day."

Mr. and Mrs. Turton actively participate in a wide range of community activities throughout the year. They support many deserving causes, charities and fundraisers, including two annual scholarships that are given to students in the community.  During the holiday season the couple, together with the entire Diane Turton, Realtors team, provide food, gifts and other donations to those in need.

"Bruce and Diane are an excellent example of how being fervent citizens can make a powerful difference," said Frank Holman, Board President of the Jersey Shore Council Boy Scouts of America.  "They have clearly demonstrated that their dedication to the community is more than just good business.  Their unwavering devotion and commitment to philanthropy is commendable."
