Volunteer of the Spring 2022 Season Lisa Fischbach
Lisa is a very active volunteer at the Vernon Hills Park District and has been a familiar face at many of our Spring 2022 events. Lisa has this to say about volunteering with the District:


“I am retired Air Force and have lived In Vernon Hills for 23 years. I am currently employed at the Village of Vernon for the past 20 years. I coordinate several events at the Village of Vernon Hills including the July 4th parade and Arbortheater concerts series. Like the Park District, we are always looking for volunteers and now it is time for me to pay it forward. I enjoy meeting people and working with the community. Since the start of COVID, life has gotten a little stagnate and I decided it is time to get out of the house and what would be the best way but to volunteer. ”

Thank you Lisa!
