MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield Area Community Foundation established the Anne Adler Community Service Award in 2010. This Award was created to honor Anne Adler and her dedication to the Marshfield Area Community Foundation. Bette Adler passed away in 2016, and the foundation decided to honor both of the Adler sisters for their work, with this award.
The award is given to someone who significantly contributes to the quality of life in the Marshfield area.
The eighth annual Adler award was recently given to Paula Jero, in recognition of her work in the community.
