Ian Linnabary receives top Commissioner Award

The Rockford Park District announced that board of commissioners president Ian Linnabary received the Mike Cassidy Commissioner Community Service Award at the Illinois Association of Park Districts (IAPD)/Illinois Park and Recreation Association (IPRA) annual conference luncheon held in Chicago recently.

The award is presented to a commissioner who has demonstrated assistance and leadership through contribution of time, services or volunteer efforts for the community he or she serves. The award is named after long-time Freeport Park District Commissioner Mike Cassidy, who worked to improve the quality of life for those in his community.

Ian began his volunteer service with the Rockford Park District in 2011 and has been instrumental in numerous projects such as the Atwood Silent Sports Trail, Rockford Bank and Trust Pavilion, and most recently, helped finalize an agreement between the Park District and Six Flags Entertainment Corporation to operate Magic Waters Waterpark.
