Rich Schoenfeld Receives Neighborhood Watch Award

John Shwiner presents Rich Schoenfeld with his award.

At a recent Village of Wellington Neighborhood Watch Group meeting, Greenview Shores I Team Captain John Shwiner presented Rich Schoenfeld with an “Outstanding Neighbor” award.

Over the past 10 years, Schoenfeld has become the subdivision’s event planner, adding family events for the residents to participate in. From the “Patriot Bike Ride” to the “NorthFUNberland Run/Walk” to the annual “Best Decorated Home and Scavenger Hunt” during the holiday season, Schoenfeld brings the community together. Schoenfeld plans each event, makes the signs and funds the prizes. Providing events to include children of all ages makes a big difference in making Greenview Shores I a true family community. Shwiner used the opportunity to surprise Schoenfeld with the award.

The Neighborhood Watch groups were formed by a cooperative engagement between the Village of Wellington and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office to provide input on how to report criminal activity and understand the policies of maintaining planning and zoning procedures. The Neighborhood Watch group also has the opportunity to speak directly to village staff and report issues of concern.
