Park board re-appointments
Wood County Probate Court Judge David Woessner has reappointed Robert Callacod and Robert Hawker to the Wood County Park District Board of Commissioners. Both appointments are for three-year terms beginning Jan. 1, 2014.

Hawker was appointed to the board in March 2013 to fill the remainder of the term formerly occupied by Frank McLaughlin, who resigned in February 2013. Hawker has been actively involved with the Friends of Wood County Parks, the YMCA/JCC of Greater Toledo, Junior Achievement and Perrysburg Symphony Association.

Callecod was initially on the board in 1987 and 1988 and played a significant role in developments that ultimately led to the creation of the Wood County Park District.

He served as the director of the Department of parks and Recreation for the City of Bowling Green for 16 years, retiring in 2005. He has also served on a variety of boards and committees serving organizations such as the Bowling Green Parks and Recreation Foundation, the Wood County Special Olympics and the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce.
