Pendleton - At 53, Mike Cannon has spent his whole life in Pendleton — and almost half of his years working as a groundskeeper for Falls Park. It’s for that hard work and dedication to the community that the Pendleton Park Board recently announced that he will be recognized at an upcoming meeting.

Park Board President Jack Wilson said he was pleased Cannon would be recognized for his continued service.

“Most of us have seen Mike either in the park, at Marsh, or somewhere else around town working,” Wilson said. “It is our pleasure to recognize someone who is as dependable as Mike has been to the park over the past 25 years.”

After the announcement, the 1979 Pendleton Heights High School graduate met with the Times-Post to discuss what it was about the town and the park he loved so much.

“I have some favorite spots, but I can’t think of just one thing,” Cannon said. “I guess I love it all.”
