The William Mayhew Dickey Award
The William Mayhew Dickey Award is given to a member of the Lawrenceville community who exemplifies, through leadership and dedicated service, the attributes of "Will" Dickey, founder of Lawrenceville Main Street.
Awarded in January 2010 to Mary and Bill Schroeder. Mary and Bill (right and left in picture, speaking with Jean Dickey, center, at the ceremony) have been volunteers of Lawrenceville Main Street since its inception in 1995.
It is very fitting that they should be the first recipients of this award. Mary has been in charge of the "Bucket Brigade," taking care of the flowers in the planters along Main Street, and as a loyal member of the fabulous Landscape Committee.
She is the go-to person for arranging flower displays at the Taste of Lawrenceville, House Tour and other events held during the year.
Bill is the "heavy lifter" of Lawrenceville Main Street. Climbing the ladder to put up the Christmas decorations on the light poles, cutting out hearts for Valentine Day decorations and taking an active role in Weeden Park keeps Bill busy during the year.
Winners will receive a special award, and their names will be placed on a plaque in the Dickey Room.
