KNOLLER FAMILY DONATES CURIO AND AWARD TO CITY
Lynn Hicks has donated a beautiful wood and glass curio cabinet owned by Peter Knoller and his Christmas Star Award to the City of Johnsonville in memory of her step-father.
Knoller, a native of Great Britain, was an integral part of the Johnsonville community since relocating here with Wellman Industries, Inc. in the 1950s. He married Lynn’s mother, Becky, over 40 years ago and they resided on Fairway Drive.
In 2017, the City of Johnsonville awarded him the Christmas Star Award for his many contributions including serving for 53 years on the Johnsonville Library Board and representing Johnsonville on the Florence County Planning Commission.
Peter Knoller was an avid supporter of community events such as the Artisan Outpost, the Heritage Festival at the River, the Johnsonville Christmas Parade, Police/Fire/Rescue squad fundraisers, as well as area church activities.
The curio eventually will be housed in the new pro shop at the Johnsonville municipal golf course.
