The Greater Bandon Association has named the October recipient of its Volunteer of the Month award. Harv Schubothe becomes the twelfth winner of the award. He was presented the award in the form of a plaque and a gift certificate donated by The Cobbler’s Bench at the October 11th, 2016 meeting of Bandon’s City Council.
In addition to serving as the Greater Bandon Association’s Executive Director, an unpaid position, Harv dedicates nearly all of his remaining time to the many commissions, committees, and events happening around Bandon each day. The chairman of the Parks and Recreation Commission, a member of the Planning Commission and the Bandon Cares Steering Committee, as well as the President of the Oregon Birder’s Association and an active volunteer in Bandon Shoreline Education for Awareness program and local Audubon chapter, you can see that Harv keeps himself quite busy.
If that weren’t enough, Harv is also a Ford Community Fellow, a graduate of the Ford Institute Leadership Program, and a Ford Community Ambassador.
His dedication to service, to his community, and to Greater Bandon Association have not gone unnoticed and I think everyone can agree that Harv is incredibly deserving of this award. Thanks, Harv!
The Greater Bandon Association will be honoring one of Bandon’s many volunteers that are making a difference in the community each month. Nominations for the November award should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to P.O. Box 161 by close of business on October 24th.
