Volunteer Appreciation 

Parks & Recreation Dept. is grateful to those volunteers who braved the potentially bad weather to give service on Oct 31. We could not have entertained over 4,000 people and provided a safe place for the kids to enjoy Halloween without your help. Don't forget "Winter is coming (Winterfest 2019) and TAAF games are Jan 18-20
