CWPD Volunteer Harry Barnes instructing archeryHarry was a special education teacher for 39 years before his retirement in 2013. He has been married for 37 years and is a proud father of two. His son, Eric, is an architect in Chicago and his daughter, Hilary, is an art teacher in Columbus.

Harry has always enjoyed gardening and woodworking. He built most of the accessory furniture in his home! We benefit from Harry’s expertise in many different areas. He often assists with nature programming, archery instruction and woodworking projects.

Harry says, “I was looking for something to do after retiring and learned that the Park District was looking for volunteers. My children enjoyed and participated in their camps, activities, and programs. I’m also taking advantage of the hiking and fitness opportunities they provide. This is a perfect way to spend my retirement years. I really enjoy it!”

The Centerville-Washington Park District would like to thank Harry, and all of our volunteers, for giving their time and talents to our community. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please contact Community Engagement Coordinator Ginger Clark.
