Bob’s nomination noted his time spent volunteering with Libertyville Fire & Rescue as well as serving on the City Council for a number of years. Also, “Anytime extra help was needed, he filled in,” Nelson said. Bob is well known for his willingness to help out wherever and whenever needed.

Ed Garrett was described as a major contributor to events and projects in Libertyville. He not only donated to the Fire Department and Daycare Center, but he and his business contributed to the city’s RAGBRAI event and 175th Celebration. Ed was unable to attend the meeting due to scheduling conflicts.
