2002 Volunteer of the Year

John Scheuer, a Marshfield resident, was recently recognized as the Marshfield Parks & Recreation Department's 2002 Volunteer of the Year award recipient.  John has been a key figure in raising funds for both the Griese Park project and Jack Hackman Field enhancement project, in addition to many other community efforts.  John is a member and former president of Marsh 21, a local non-profit organization whose focus is the development of quality outdoor sports and recreation facilities.

John is the second recipient of this award.  In 2001, John Leick received the initial award for his numerous volunteer efforts with the Wildwood Zoological Society and the Wildwood Zoo.

The Parks, Recreation & Forestry Committee annually makes the selection based on the following criteria:

  • The individual has performed the volunteer service over a number of years.
  • The individual has performed the service without any financial payment or other consideration.
  • The program, facility, or activity related to the individual's volunteer hours has impacted a relatively large number of people.
  • The individual served in a leadership role that influenced or guided additional volunteers to complete a specific project or program.

Congratulations to John!
