The Tiburon Peninsula Chamber of Commerce and the Belvedere Tiburon Rotary Club will honor Tiburon’s 2013 Citizen on the Year, Jim Wood, at a luncheon on Wednesday, November 6, from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm at the San Francisco Yacht Club, 98 Beach Road, Belvedere, CA 94920.
The cofounder of Marin Magazine, Wood is being recognized for his work in founding the Green Team, which is dedicated to clearing non native plants and unsightly weeds from the Tiburon Peninsula. Wood and his team can be seen most weekends, rain or shine, weeding, clearing brush, picking up litter, and planting poppies along Tiburon Boulevard. As one resident said, “Jim not only talks the talk, but he walks the walk. He cares about our community and does something about it.”

The 20th annual awards event, honoring local business leaders for their community contributions, was held on September 26 at the St. Vincent’s School for Boys in San Rafael.
