Steve Scheibe is the 2012 recipient of the Fredericksburg Area AARP Chapter 3396 Wilson Corley Community Service Award.  Scheibe has made a tremendous impact in the Fredericksburg area through his community service.  He currently serves as President of the Fredericksburg Chapter.  In addition, he represents AARP and TRIAD at information tables at numerous regional events such as the Art of Aging.  For many years, Scheibe has volunteered with the “Walk to End Alzheimer’s.”  He also has dedicated significant time and energy to volunteering with the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank.  He has spent many Saturday mornings filling boxes with food to benefit hungry families.

Scheibe has also worked with Hospice Support Care for three years, giving caregivers a break as their family members face end of life.  He has volunteered with the Mental Health America of Fredericksburg, visiting seniors and people living with illness.  Scheibe organized the local AARP members in serving meals at the Thurman Brisban Center.  He has planned the meals, purchased much of the food and prepared it with the help of chapter members.   He also spends what time he can with Habitat for Humanity and MICAH Ministries.  In recognition of his outstanding commitment to service, the Fredericksburg Area AARP Chapter 3396 proud to recognize Steve Scheibe with the 2012 Wilson Corley Community Service Award.

Scheibe is the second recipient of the Wilson Corley Community Service Award, established by the Fredericksburg Chapter in honor of outstanding community volunteer Wilson Corley.  Prior to his death in 2005, Corley served as president of the Fredericksburg chapter.  He also was instrumental in helping to establish TRIAD in conjunction with the local police departments. Corley drove for the “Volunteer Wheels” program taking elderly non-drivers to their doctor’s appointments.  He assisted the local area Alzheimer’s Association in establishing the “Walk against Alzheimer’s” in Fredericksburg.   Mr. Corley was always willing to give his time to local causes when called upon.   The Fredericksburg Area AARP Chapter 3396 is proud to honor him through this annual Community Service Award.
