Volunteer Spotlight – Shelley

Shelley Marshall 2016 – 2020

The community association wants to thank Shelley Marshall for all the time and effort she gives as a volunteer in her community. Shelley has worn a couple of different hats these past couple of years, and often works quietly behind the scenes so many are not aware of everything she’s doing.

Shelley has had a big role as one of the community association’s indoor coordinators for the past few years, organizing classes for kids and adults, booking the school classrooms and gyms needed for the activities, and also helping find instructors.

What many don’t know, though, is that she played a large role in the successful makeover of the community’s only outdoor rink on Valens Drive this past summer. Rink coordinator, Janet, explained that “Shelley helped every step of the way. She helped organize all the fundraisers. We also met regularly to discuss everything from fundraising to grants, as well as finding volunteers. Once we were close to having the funds in place, we met to discuss all the logistics of tear down and then rebuilding.”

Shelley made a huge difference in her community that will impact our community for years to come. We’re so happy to have her on the community association board again this year – thank you Shelley!

Volunteer Spotlight – Dave

Dave Newton – 14 years and counting

The Community Association is very thankful Dave Newton has been volunteering in the community for 14 years. When he first joined, it was to fill the role of Soccer Coordinator for 10 years. He coached when his kids were young and playing soccer, and then stayed on as the community’s soccer coordinator even after his own kids aged out of community-level soccer. In addition, for the past 4 years, he’s been a volunteer Member At Large on the board and is always around to help out at various community events.

Thank you for being such a strong and long-time supporter in the community, Dave.
