One of the many reasons that Richard Walsh and
Eric Wilborn are so highly sought after is that they feel a deep sense of
compassion for others. Their love for the community and great desire to serve
is reflected in their efforts to better Keizer and surrounding areas.
Richard M. Walsh
Rich has spent a lifetime giving back to
his community. His passion for community
service began with delivering meals on wheels as a high school student and has
continued ever since. He has volunteered
countless hours at his children's
schools, his church, the boy scouts, a local non-profit, and many local
community projects. His volunteer work
for the Willamette River Water Trail project was extensive and resulted in his being
invited to travel to Washington D.C. to receive an award for the organization and
to give a presentation to the Department of Interior.
His ongoing desire to better the lives
of others was his motivation to become a member of the Keizer City Council from
2000-2011 where he also served as council president from 2005-2009. In addition
he also volunteered to be on dozens of Keizer committees and task forces to
help his community. His exemplary volunteer work was recognized when he was
awarded the President's award by the Keizer Chamber of Commerce.
Rich also volunteered countless hours in
spearheading many community efforts to raise millions of dollars to create
Keizer Rapids Park and to fund its many amenities. These efforts were recognized
by the Mid-Willamette Valley Council of Governments by presenting him with the
Regional Leadership Award and by the Keizer City Council by naming the street
in Keizer Rapids Park as Walsh Way and by naming the boat ramp at the park, Walsh's
Rich and Walsh & Associates continue
to volunteer and invest in their community.
