Appreciation for Holub long overdue

Last July, town employee George Holub retired from Summerfield's Parks and Recreation supervisor position. Despite George's huge effort as a volunteer on the Parks and Rec. committee, and his unwavering commitment to Summerfield as an employee, Summerfield quietly assisted George into retirement after five years of service. One would think Summerfield would rent the community center for a party to thank George for his service to the town. C'mon, a little cake and punch wouldn't kill you. Those who have volunteered to work for George would have showed up to thank him for his efforts and reminisce about the work done for the town. After all, George was a major reason many people volunteered in the parks. He led by example and demonstrated his worth and allegiance to Summerfield as a volunteer long before he became an employee. Prior to his move to Summerfield, he was a successful business owner. With good reason, former town manager Michael Brandt chose George as Summerfield's first Parks and Rec. supervisor. Many of us who have volunteered to work with George are puzzled by the town's lack of enthusiasm in recognizing George's accomplishments as a volunteer and an employee. If the town of Summerfield cannot bring itself to publicly thank George Holub for a good job, what does it think about regular volunteers? We think you can keep your cake.
