A Royal Thank You to our Volunteers
In recognition of the support New Braunfels Parks receives throughout the year from volunteers, the Parks and Recreation Department hosted the 5th annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner on Thursday, September 12th 2013. This year’s event was themed “A Royal Thank You”. Guests enjoyed a royal evening of feasting, awards, and entertainment. Several volunteers and organizations were recognized with awards for their contributions to the Parks and Recreation Department and community as a whole.
Volunteer efforts are visible throughout our community in projects such as park cleanup, tree planting and mulching, trail building and repair, planting and weeding landscape beds and assistance at special events. This year our department has reached historic heights in the quantity and quality of service to our parks, volunteers have provided. In 2013, park volunteers have contributed a total of 3,304 hours valued at $72,005.
