City’s baseball commissioner is Volunteer of the Year

October 24, 2006

Kevin Gardner, the longtime baseball commissioner for Lansing Parks and Recreation, is Lansing's 2006 Volunteer of the Year.

Gardner was recognized Monday evening during the 13th annual City Recognition Dinner at the Lansing Community Center.

In honoring Gardner, Mayor Kenneth Bernard described a tireless volunteer.

"His generosity to the Lansing Parks and Recreation Department has been endless," Bernard said.

The Volunteer of the Year award is presented annually by Lansing PRIDE.

Also Monday night, Parks and Recreation director Jason Crum was named the city's Employee of the Year.

City Administrator Mike Smith noted all of the behind-the-scenes work Crum and his staff to help make the city's public events successful and said Crum was the type of employee who when given an assignment carries it out to the best possible conclusion.

Crum was out of town tending to a death in his family and could not attend the dinner.
