Audre has had a profound impact on the development of Geauga County. The Ohio Fairs Hall of Fame inducted him for his 65-year service as a director of The Great Geauga County Fair – longer than anyone else in Ohio and more than one-third of the 181 years that the fair has been in existence. The 2010 Fair marked the 95th year that he has attended the fair. Outside of the Fair, Audre has been a long time member and leader in the local grange, Geauga County Soil & Water Conservation Board, Geauga County Cooperative Association, Geauga County Maple Festival, Geauga County 4-H Advisory Committee, and Village of Newbury Trustee. In 1948, Audre received two awards: Geauga County Farm Family and Ohio Dairy Farmer of the Year.
