The community gathered on Saturday, June 2 for a special celebration in honor of former Shelburne Police Chief Jim Warden, where he received the Colleen Haag Public Service Award. The afternoon gathering was held at Palmer’s Sugarhouse on the Shelburne Hinesburg Road.
Selectboard Chair Jerry Storey presented the award to Warden. The award is named for the longtime town clerk who retired in 2016 and it is given to honor an individual for their service and dedication to the community.
Warden retired last summer after 30 years as chief of police in Shelburne. In March, the Selectboard voted to make him this year’s Haag Award recipient.
The gathering gave local residents a chance to thank Warden for his service and friendship.
