Greenwood Chamber names Dave Mayville as top citizen
In terms of the Greenwood Chamber of Commerce’s plans to honor Dave Mayville with its annual citizen of the year award, his timing in announcing the closing of his grocery store last week was less than ideal. However, his list of community contributions was still more than enough to qualify him for the honor, and so it was that Mayville took his place Sunday evening on the list of 36 past recipients.
The award was presented at the Chamber’s annual banquet at Parkway Pines. After accepting his plaque from Chamber Board of Directors member Peggy Noeldner, Mayville said it was a bittersweet moment for him, as he and his wife, Chriss, and their kids are saddened by the realization that the Mayville’s Market grocery store they ran for 10 years in Greenwood can no longer survive financially. It will close for good as soon as the stock is liquidated.
Mayville said owning the store has been a rewarding experience for him and his family. After moving to Greenwood from Shawano a decade ago, the Mayville family quickly made a home here, and the children thrived in Greenwood’s schools. Not only was the business able to serve the community’s grocery needs — and Loyal’s after its grocery store closed — the Mayville family was also able to achieve something Dave had always wanted — to be able to give back.
