ALCC presents 2014 Volunteer Service Awards


The Associated Landscape Contractors of Colorado (ALCC) recognized four recipients of its 2014 Volunteer Service Awards.

Glen Ellison, of Ceres Landcare in Eagle, Colo., won the Bob Cannon Lifetime Achievement Award, which honors loyal, dedicated service to the Green Industry and is bestowed to individuals who contribute ideas, programs and efforts that benefit ALCC members and the professional image of the industry.

A main founder of ALCC’s Mountain Chapter in the 1990s, Ellison spent many years helping lead that group. He has participated and judged in the association’s Excellence in Landscape Awards program and volunteered on the scholarship committee for 16 years.

Eric Moroski, of Weisburg Landscape Maintenance in Colorado Springs, Colo., was named John Garvey Person of the Year in honor of his volunteer service.

On behalf of the ALCC Southern Chapter, Moroski worked on water issues to foster harmony among the industry, water providers and city council in 2013. “His thoughtful suggestions and a work-together attitude have been an asset for our industry in these discussions,” said Kristen Fefes, executive director, ALCC. “Throughout his career, Moroski has been an advocate of conscientious resource management, with water being paramount given the ongoing threat of drought for our state.”

Levi Heidrich, of Colorado Tree Farm Nursery in Colorado Springs, was given the Outlook Emerging Leader Award, which recognizes a young professional (younger than 40 years old) who demonstrates great potential and commitment to improving the landscape industry.

Heidrich fit the bill because he’s been an active volunteer for several years in the ALCC Southern Chapter and worked on its behalf on water issues at meetings with the utilities and city.

Joe Domanik, of Bobcat of the Rockies in Windsor, Colo., was given the Stanley Brown Supplier Member Distinguished Service Award, which is bestowed to a supplier for their outstanding commitment to the ALCC and the industry.

Domanik is active in Northern Chapter ALCC leadership and takes a strong role in the chapter’s annual Day of Service projects where the chapter takes on a daylong landscape installation or renovation. As a supplier, he promotes industry professionalism as the key to better customers and happier consumers.
