The Licking Park District was proud to present Joe Wilson of Johnstown the 2015 Volunteer of the Year Award at the Annual Volunteer Recognition Dinner, held this past Saturday, January 23, 2016, in Newark. For the past three years, Joe has been committed to keeping the Disc Golf Course at Lobdell Reserve in Alexandria clean by taking out the trash from the course each and every week, no matter what the weather. He has even been seen using a snow sled to haul out the trash from the far side of the course. Joe has also assisted in trimming tree limbs and other vegetation around the course, monitoring activities, and educating course users of park rules and course etiquette.
Joe is a member of the Columbus Flyers Disc Golf Club, and has performed over 64 hours of service to the parks in 2015. The park district would like to thank Joe for his years of service to the disc golf course, as well as to the many volunteers who give thousands of hours each year to help keep our parks safe enjoyable for all of us.
