As I look back over 2017 I'm filled with gratitude for the many people involved in the Parkway effort.
I'm grateful for an outstanding Board of Directors that give their time to ensure that the Trust's resources are used wisely and the organization is well-governed, and consistently support me in my role as Executive Director.
I'm thankful for the cadre of volunteers that join our staff and board in all manner of work, from greeting visitors at the River Center to leading school field trips to planting trees to assisting with kayak tours.
I'm thankful for the many individual and business supporters that provide financial resources to the Trust, and that help us reach new audiences.
And I'm thankful for you. Whether you have volunteered, attended a Party for the Parkway, made a donation, attended a meeting, written a letter, shared a social media post, walked on the trail, or cheered from the sidelines, you are an important part of our work, and my hope for the future.
Wishing you a 2018 rich with constructive communication, deep relationships, and meaningful work. Happy New Year!
