Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring, right, presents Jodi Hiatt with the city's Volunteer of the Month award.


Congratulations to volunteer extraordinaire Jodi Hiatt, Marysville’s newest Volunteer of the Month. 

Hiatt is the president and chief ambassador of the Marysville Strawberry Festival where she has volunteered since 1999 and has played a great part in the festival's continued success. As Maryfest’s current president, Hiatt is an ambassador for the city of Marysville and attends dozens of summer festival events throughout Washington, Oregon and British Columbia, where she promotes Maryfest events and the Marysville community. This past June more than 100,000 people attended the 87th Annual Strawberry Festival, placing third on the Herald’s list of top 10 most-visited attractions in Snohomish County

Hiatt also has volunteered countless hours to other local nonprofit organizations over the past 25 years. Among them are Pennies for Puppies, Marysville Handmade and Homegrown Street Festival, the Marysville Historical Society and Red Curtain Arts Center. Other volunteers appreciate that Jodi steps up to take on challenges and continually works to create a culture of teamwork.

“Thank you, Jodi, for continually working to make Marysville a better place,” said Mayor Jon Nehring as he presented the award at the Feb. 25 Marysville City Council meeting.
