Crozet Community Association President Tim Tolson presented the association’s Good Neighbor Awards to Build Crozet Library chair Bill Schrader and to Crozet Trails Crew leader Jessica Mauzy at the Crozet Independence Day Celebration at Crozet Park July 5. The award recognizes Crozet citizens who make special contributions to the welfare of the town.
The citation for Schrader read:
“In appreciation of his wise and persevering leadership of the fund raising campaign to provide all the contents of the new Crozet Library, a goal met by the generosity of the people of western Albemarle thanks to his commitment to team building and humble leadership; for his service to the citizens of Crozet on the Crozet Community Advisory Council; for air travelers as chair of the Charlottesville-Albemarle Joint Airport Commission, and for his vigilant advocacy for the welfare of his neighbors.”
The citation for Mauzy read:
“In appreciation of her pioneering and dogged leadership of Crozet’s volunteer trail builders, who are realizing the vision of Crozet as a town connected by pathways; for her personal tirelessness and toughness at the toil of trail-making; for her patience and persistence with public process, and for her abiding aspirations for the health and unity of the people of Crozet.”
Tolson said the awards were presented with gratitude on behalf of the people of Crozet. A crowd approaching 5,000 witnessed the presentation. Mauzy was traveling on the occasion and Bob Dombrowe of the CTC accepted in her absence. Tolson presented the award to her personally at the CTC’s monthly meeting later in July.
