As my family and I pack and move to the Valley, I wanted to take this opportunity to send a big thank you to everyone that I have worked with for the five years I have been with parks and recreation. From all the generous businesses and sponsors in town that have supported our events to the town departments who are short staffed that have gone the extra mile to ensure our events and programs are a success.
Thank you to all the great kids that have been trained hard as lifeguards and have protected our children throughout the summer.
Another a huge thank you to all the volunteers who have helped out with every aspect of our events. None of our events and programs would be successful without your endless willingness to help. Many thanks to you all.
And lastly, the parks and rec department — with everything we have been through these five years, from former employees to current, when the bar was raised for us to perform, not once did anyone ever say “no.” It was always, “let’s get it done!”
What a long, strange, but fun trip this has been.
