2017 Grand Marshal
Sheridan Volunteer Named as Parade Grand Marshal
Tina Mason volunteers some of her time at the Sharing with Sheridan Food Bank,
which is open to the public every Thursday at Sheridan Recreation
Center, 3325 W. Oxford Avenue. Tina stocks shelves and assists clients
with selecting food. She also helps by taking groceries to cars for
loading. Tina shares that she enjoys volunteering because “I meet and
help people and get to know my community better.” However, Tina spends
most of the rest of her time outdoors in the Sheridan parks walking her
perfect, petite pooch, Jack. Tina moved to Sheridan about six months ago
to live with her sister, Jan Zarek. Jan has been in the community for
over eight years. Tina is very enthusiastic about the several parks that
are well within walking distance of her home including Sheridan
Community Park, Veteran’s Park and Centennial Park which encompasses a
furry companion, Jack, is also very enthusiastic about the neighborhood
parks. At age seven, Jack is very alert and fancies being active.
Whereas Tina enjoys the amazing Colorado sunshine and the sounds of
nature she experiences when outdoors, Jack likes the excitement and
challenge of chasing squirrels. “Jack is just crazy about squirrels! He
nearly climbs up the tree to get at them,” explains Tina. “He is so
entertaining and makes people laugh with all his chasing around.” Tina
takes great pleasure in sharing the antics of her fun, little pup.
Tina also takes great pride in the legacy that her family holds at the local VFW Post 9644.
Tina’s dad was a longtime member and WWII veteran who has now passed
away. Her mom, also deceased, was a member of the Ladies’ Auxillary.
Additionally, the rest of Tina’s existing family belong to the VFW. In
addition to her service at Sharing with Sheridan Food Bank, Tina volunteers time to help with food service at Post 9644.

that more people will get to know my dog, Jack.”
