A Second Serving of Thanks

 Permanent link   All Posts

Just like Thanksgiving seconds, we thought we would “pile on” another Thanksgiving related post this week.  We couldn’t help ourselves; our thankfulness is overflowing! 

The staff here at NRPA headquarters took a few moments to reflect and think about the amazing members we have. After all, most of the great work of local parks and recreation we are thankful for wouldn’t be a reality without our members and the dedicated park and recreation professionals, staff and volunteers that make everything happen.
