Parks & Recreation
2005 Volunteer of the Year
The 2005 award goes to Dave Tiffany for his efforts to construct, maintain and program the disc golf courses at Wildwood Park and Braem Park.
Dave began his disc golf volunteer efforts prior to 1990 when he approached the Parks and Recreation Department about installing its first disc golf course at Wildwood Park near Hefko Swimming Pool. Shortly thereafter, Dave had received approval from the Parks, Recreation and Forestry Committee, arranged for donations and funding, had baskets constructed and installed, started a league and held a tournament. Since that time, Dave has continued commitment to both the sport and community. He remains the key contact person between the Parks and Recreation Department and disc golf issues. Dave also continues to organize leagues and tournaments and performs numerous hours of volunteer service maintaining or improving the Parks and Recreation Department disc golf courses.
In 2000, Dave worked with the Parks and Recreation Department to plan a new 18-hole disc golf course at Braem Park. He and fellow disc golf enthusiasts spent numerous hours of planning and brushing of hole layouts at Braem Park. Today, both courses are in place and used regularly by a wide variety of age groups. Dave and his club members continue to provide maintenance for both courses and work closely with the Parks and Recreation Department staff.
