The public is invited to attend the naming ceremony for the Clancy Woolman Clubhouse from 2 to 4 p.m. Friday, April 26 at the Highlands Golf Course, 5501 N.W. 12th Street. Mayor Chris Beutler will make remarks at 2:15 p.m. about the longtime supporter of Lincoln Parks and Recreation facilities and programs, including the City Golf program. A reception will follow the presentation.
Woolman's four decades of active support includes 21 years of service on the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board. During that time, two golf courses opened - Mahoney in 1978 and Highlands in 1992. Woolman worked with nine Mayors and three Parks and Recreation Directors. He was a founding member of the Lincoln Parks and Recreation Foundation in 1992, and served on the Board of Directors for 15 years. Woolman is also a trustee of the Lincoln Parks Foundation.
"Clancy has generously committed his time and energy to Parks and Recreation facilities and programs in Lincoln," said Lynn Johnson, Lincoln Parks and Recreation Director. "Clancy is particularly passionate about the City Golf Program. This naming of the clubhouse is a small token of our appreciation for all that Clancy has contributed to our parks and our City."
The Parks and Recreation Facilities Naming Policy states that a facility may be named in recognition of civic accomplishments and contributions related to the Department's activities.
